KILGOUR 2018 Rosé
Hand harvested 27th February 2018, Abel clone Pinot Noir fruit was immediately gently whole bunch pressed to give minimal colour and tannin extraction. Wild fermentation occurred ion older French barrels. The wine was then rested on lees to relax and unwind for 5 months prior to assemblage and bottling in August.
This Rosé displays a pale penny copper colour with hints of salmon. Peaches and cream are evident on the nose alongside liquorice, orange peel and hints of complexing cinnamon spice. Offering a generous mouth filling palate, showing rich peaches and cream that flows on and on. The high pH gives the wine a lovely mouth-coating texture and warmth, with orange peel acidity giving the wine a lovely structure. The palate is long and silky with endless flavour.
Enjoy now and over the next 18 months. Try with zucchini flower croquets, salmon pate or cool sea spray.
