This is our take on a Spanish inspired Rose - a blend of Grenache (78%) Tempranillo (18%) Graciano (4.6%) and Carignan (2.4%). A number of techniques were utilised in crafting this Rose. The Grenache, Tempranillo and Graciano components was gently pressed after 8 hours of skin contact to extract some colour and the delicate flavours and aromatics. The Tempranillo and Graciano were co-fermented to bring these two varieties together as early in the winemaking process as possible. The Carignan component was made using the traditional Saignee or 'Bleed Off ' from a red wine ferment. Blending was great fun. With many different components and blends on the bench the winemaking team called in for an Antipasto plate to finalise things. The wine was bottled with no fining and a light filatration.
