2023 10X Rosé
A lifted bouquet of elderflower, cherry, and floral nuances capture the beauty of the Pinot Noir grape with equally adopted flavours continuing throughout the palate. While the mouthfeel exerts a creaminess, the overall savoury nature of this wine leads our winemakers to believe this is our best Rosé to date.
Higher than average rainfall during flowering and over the course of the season resulted in lower yields on all sites. Flavour and sugar development were prolonged, resulting in more hang time, greater intensity and drive.

Featuring candied orange, rose petals and pickled ginger, this fleshy wine has a desirable earthiness that pulls you in. While the savoury notes dominant the mouthfeel, every now and then a pop of watermelon comes up and brings you to that taste of summer.
