The 2022 growing season was another mild and gentle growing season. It had a late, wet start in Spring, followed by a mild summer and cool autumn. Lots of hang time and lower than average yields. Grown specifically for Rosato and picked early in the red-fruit-flavour spectrum. Fermented in stainless steel with fluffy lees, to create a vibrant, lifted rose with a savoury finish. Vegan friendly.

Machine harvested and pressed with minimal skin contact, pressings kept separate. Cold settled, rack to ferment with fluffy lees. Inoculated with yeast Opale2. Fermented at cool temperature in stainless steel. Once dry it was sulphured, heat and cold stabilised and bottled in July 2022.
