Sparkling White- Ashton Hills Piccadilly Valley Vintage Rose 2017
Ashton Hills Piccadilly Valley Vintage Rose 2017
Nose: Lifted fresh strawberry and cranberry aromas, with hints of rose petal and creamy biscuit notes.
Palate: Crunchy fresh raspberries and stone fruits are delicately balanced with a creamy supple mouthfeel from the bottle fermentation. The low dosage carries the crisp clean finish.
Food Pairing: Fresh pan fried salmon.
Vinification: Hand-picked fruit was chilled before gentle, whole bunch pressing. Fermented in tank, the colourless pinot noir base wine was then assembled and tiraged, refermenting in bottle via méthode traditionnelle and disgorged after one year. The attractive salmon hue was achieved by including a small amount of dry pinot noir table wine at dosage, further enhancing the depth of colour, flavour and texture.
