This year's Rosé is a combination of both the Millton and Cirrus Vineyards fruit.

Pinot Noir is the core component; initially blended with Riesling for cofermentation in our large Totara cask.  Just prior to bottling we chose to include a gift of our Under Your Skin blend for balance.  We've gone under crown cap this year with the understanding that this wine still has some life in it and may well gather some spritz as it evolves.

Relax and enjoy this summer or next.
