Colour: Light pink hues with a lively fine bead

Amora: Crisp Granny Smith apple with strawberry notes.

Palate: Underpinned by Tasmania’s cool climate natural acidity, this aperitif sparkling rosé with primary fruit of field berries, strawberries and cream and citrus on the palate finishes vibrant and clean.

Grapes: Sourced from our estate vineyard at Relbia in northern Tasmania 88.5% Pinot Noir 11.5% Chardonnay.

Winemaking: Whole bunch pressed at 450 litre per tonne, juice is left on skins for a minimum of 1 hr to extract its pink blush and textural components. Primary fermentation is carried out in stainless steel tanks with a neutral yeast strain, and no malolactic fermentation, to ensure the retention of the acidity for long term ageing. The wine is then stabilised prior to re-inoculation with the same yeast strain for bottle fermentation. The wine is aged in bottle with its yeast lees for 4 years prior to disgorging to aid texture development and complexity. A light dosage is employed to retain crispness and length.

Cellaring: After carefully cellaring with yeast lees for 4 years prior to disgorging this wine can be enjoyed now as a fresh and lively sparkling but further bottle age will reward those who enjoy the complex toasty characters developed by further ageing.

Serving Suggestions: Enjoy as an aperitif or match with roasted duck, pan seared trout and lightly grilled lamb.
