2019 Kilikanoon Second Fiddle Grenache Rose Clare Valley – The vineyard is planted on deep loam over limestone soils that tend to produce larger berries with higher juice to skin ratios, producing perfect fruit to create a crisp, dry and flavoursome Rosé.
The bunches for the Grenache Rosé were harvested earlier in the season to retain the natural crisp acidity of the fruit. These bunches were held on skins for just a couple of hours, allowing for the colour and ripe flavours to develop before being lightly pressed. The juice was fermented slowly at low temperatures to maintain the bright aromas of the variety.
Strawberry in colour with soft pink hues, the wine has a brilliant clarity. Bright perfumed aromatics of fresh guava and rose petal. Soft layers of fresh melon are underpinned with notes of passion-fruit, all of which is driven by a crisp natural citrus acidity.
Best consumed young but will develop additional complexity with 1 – 3 years in the cellar.
