Sam Miranda Rosata 2014THIS VINTAGE HAS SOLD OUT!
Salmon pink in colour this years Rosato is a blend of Barbera, Sangiovese and Dolcetto. Each variety offering a subtle hint of its presence. Subtle fruit flavours are enhanced by the silky smooth texture of the palate. The wine lingers and finishes with crisp natural acidity. More delicate in style than our 2012 release, this style is a great companion to conversation, food and friends.
Serve chilled or over ice!
The fruit was machine harvested in the night and left in the bins for 24 hours. The must was allowed to just start to naturally ferment on the skins and then the clear juice was sucked out via a screen with no maceration of the skins. The juice completed fermentation over the next 6 weeks at a chilly 10 c and the finished wine was lightly fined and then bottled in late June.
Grown at our Myrrhee Vineyard in the Southern reaches of the King Valley At an altitude of 450m. The gentle sloping site has an East North Eastern aspect with East West row orientation.
