Drumsara Central Otago VVS Pinot Rosé 2017
Vintage 2017 was a challenging early in the growing season with nothing predictable due to the weather. However, the autumn was dry and warm allowing the ripening fruit to develop good varietal flavours. We managed a typical mid April harvest and the fruit was hand-picked, impeccably clean with good maturity.
The hand-picked whole bunches were de-stemmed and crushed before being macerated in their own juice, to slowly extract the attractive pink. This was then pressed off the skins and blended with another component, a bleed from Drumsara Pinot Noir 2017.
Our VVS (Very Very Special) Pinot Rosé 2017 has a bright pink hue. Vibrant aromas of fresh strawberry, raspberry and watermelon on the nose precede a rich and lively palate with a lively burst of cherry, raspberry and ripe watermelon flavours.
