2020 10X Rosé
Pinot Noir Rose captures watermelon, mandarin peel and pink musk all in one glass.
Lower than average rainfall and relatively standard temperatures over winter and cooler temperatures over Spring, led to late budburst and flowering (our latest on record). A mild start to the Summer delayed fruit set followed by mild conditions over Autumn providing slower ripening and resulting in a later start to the vintage (2 weeks later than average). Yields were reduced but those grapes that were picked were of good quality – great natural acidity and lovely flavours in our Chardonnay with the Pinot Noir benefitting from the long cool ripening.
