2019 Mount Pleasant Isabelle Rose Hunter Valley – Fruit was allocated to the rosé and picked specifically to produce this style. The grapes were picked early in the day, crushed and chilled to press, where four hours of skin contact occured. This time on skins allowed for lovely blush colour pick up and flavour extraction to occur. The valves were opened and the juice was allowed to drain – it was then settled, fined then racked and warmed for fermentation – 80% in stainless steel and 20% in oak for indigenous fermentation. After fermentation, the wine was blended and bottled with no further fining.
A bouquet of intense florals, punchy red berries and ripe orange cirtus tones. Textural with great length and power, the fruit aromas present on the fore of the palate. Intensity, focus and weight are all attributes of this dry rosé.
Great flavours and wonderful acidities are the standout feature of 2019.
