|This is the first vintage of Rosé that Sandra Oldfield has made and it was done covertly in the wee hours of the morning. It consists 46% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Franc, and 8% Pinot Gris. This Rosé was produced using the Saignee method, or bleeding of the vats. This means that after crushing, the grapes went into the tank and shortly afterwards the juice was drained off its skins for fermentation in 4 stainless steel barrels. The Cabernet Franc|
juice had 24 hours of skin contact time while the Merlot had only six hours. Once in the stainless steel barrels, the wine went through cold fermentation. After fermentation, the barrels were racked and topped up with Pinot Gris then blended together before bottling.
This wine is available only to our Crush Club members.
