The Companion Rosé 2019 is made up of specifically selected batches of grapes from our vineyards. These batches are harvested early for freshness in the wine. The grapes are left on the skins for about an hour to draw just the right amount of colour before being basket pressed. The juice is fermented in seasoned French oak barrels and left to settle for about 5 months before being bottled by hand.

Alex’s thoughts “: Pinky rose gold in colour, this wine has powerful aromas of ripe strawberry, litchi, and cut grass. The palate is soft and textured with vibrant acidity. Typical stone and berry fruit flavours are complimented by butterscotch undertones. Drink now, but will last for at least 5 years.”
