Bush Vine Rosé 2023
This Rosé is made from bush vines of Grenache and Mataro specifically managed with the intention of making a savoury, just ripe style of dry Rosé.
These varieties are perfect for bush vines growing in sand, being upright growers and water wise. The grapes were picked by hand early and made to be textural and refreshing. The wine is just ripe, grippy, fresh and delicious - it almost doesn't matter what the varieties are.
Limited quantities available.
Fruit from a small section of bush vines grown on deep sand from own rooted Grenache and Mataro. Vine ages range from ~30 years to for the larger portion plus some first crop junior vines planted from cuttings out of the oldest vines on Vinya Vella.
Picked on 9th March 2023.
Fruit was hand harvested and de-stemmed, then given 36 hours skin contact before pressing. Fermentation was in stainless steel and old oak, then the wine was stored in neutral large old oak prior to bottling.
