D'Akaroa Rosé 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Rose d'Akaroa This wine is the result of careful viticulture practiced at Sunnybrae - a certified sustainable vineyard located on the North facing slopes of French Farm Valley, bordering the Akaroa Harbour. Thsi wine was fermented to a dry (4g/L residual sugar) and shows pronounced elegant red berry fruit aromas with a subtle savoury minerality. 70% Merlot and 30% Pinot Noir grapes were cold macerated for 7 days prior to fermentation resulting in a deeeper coloured wine with good body and pleasant mouthfeel. Alc/vol 12% Residual sugar 4g/L

Tresillian is located on the Canterbury Plains of the South Island of New Zealand. The Estate vineyard is situated on a flat but sheltered site with silt loam soils over ancient riverbed of the Waimakariri river. Canterbury is a "Cool climate" growing region, -which results in  the wines having a loads of fruit characters, natural minerality, and lifted crisp acidity. Overall, the climate is mild and dry, which is emminently suited to producing fine Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling wines. The Family lease vineyards on Banks Peninsula. These lie nestled on the Northern Slopes of French Farm Valley, a very beautiful and tranquil spot. The soils were formed by volcanic action some 7 million years ago. The rich loamy, clay based soils, along with the warmer climate help produce rich Pinot Noir wines, and lifted floral romas in the rieslings. Read less
