2017 10X Rosé

Our 10X wines are designed as easy drinking examples of what the Mornington Peninsula can produce. They may have been picked from younger vines or at slightly different times to achieve slightly different characteristics and, as a general rule, they see less new oak and spend less time in oak during maturation.

The end result is more approachable, mor accessible and more immediately rewarding; the wines have a delicious freshness and clarity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Carefully balancing vitality and delicacy, this pale, water pink colured rosé flirts with strawberry Pinot Noir fruit and musk, before moving into strawberries and cream, the acidity cutting through the generous middle to tighten things up considerably. There's a real pushpull between textural, barrel matured softness and then acid freshness, the final wine still quite shy in the scheme of things. A fresh, yet savoury style of cool rosé with more weight than most. Andrew Graham [December 2017, commissioned by TMBT]

Vintage Notes
2017

Following an average rainfall and relatively warm winter, it was again the spring weather leading up to flowering which caused issues. October was our third wettest on record (96mm v 62mm average) and November saw our second coldest maximum and minimum temperatures (19.3° v 20.9°, 9.6° v 10.9°), consequently the budburst interval (budburst-flowering) was our longest ever – 87 days v an average of 75 days – and flowering was our latest ever (5 December v our 21 November average). In the end, due to the excellent February and March, hang time (budburstharvest) was average – 205 days v an average of 204 days – and harvest date was close to average – 1 April v an average of 29 March. Yields are down because of the problems around flowering but summer and early autumn saw long, slow ripening – perfect for our Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
