2018 Huntington Estate Pinot Noir Dry Rosé
Fresh, fruity and crisp.
VINTAGE 2018 has been characterised by intensely dry heat spells followed by short, heavy rainfall. With a lot of hard work from our vineyard team, we picked our fruit very early to beat the heat and secured stunning, evenly ripened fruit with clean, restrained acids.
VARIETY In the early ‘80s, when Mateus reigned supreme, Huntington Estate launched one of Australia’s first dry rosés and it’s been a firm favourite with our customers ever since.
WINEMAKING Fruit from Block 12 was picked on the 07/02/2018 at 12 Baume. After short contact with skins, the wine was pressed off with 4% whole bunch Cabernet Sauvignon for elegance and freshness.
IN NOSE Fresh strawberry and raspberry with a hint of lemongrass.
IN MOUTH Cherry, raspberry and red apple Refreshingly dry with subtle complexities of fl avour and a crisp, clean structure.
CELLAR until 2024+
DRINK WITH Long lunches in the sunshine
