2016 FOUR CHAMBERS PINOT ROSE
2016 Four Chambers Pinot Rose
- 90pts James Halliday WIne Companion 2018
Pale strawberry, salmon colour with brilliant clarity. Delicate strawberries and cream gently lift out of the glass, and a subtle raspberry edge with a hint of rose petal blossom in a placid spring breeze dances in the background. Gentle fruit flavours reflect the nose while the elegant acid and soft minerality combines effortlessly to bring finesse and grace to the palate. With great balance, soft fruit flavours and great length this wine finishes with a delicate persistence and satisfaction.
The estate grown fruit is harvested during the cool of the night to maintain delicate fruit characters. Treated very similar to the white varieties, the Pinot Noir fruit has minimal skin contact and fermented under cool temperatures to preserve the aromatic intensity. The wine is bottled early in its life to further retain its freshness and varietal character.
