2020 Domenica Nebbiolo Rose Beechworth – Domenica sits 460m above sea level atop the granite ridge sweeping away to the south west of Beechworth. The wines are vividly reflective of their origin, a gripping mineral texture encasing the mature vine vitality of the varietals chosen to express it.
Winemaking is traditional. Taste is more important than numbers. The yeasts comes from the site, not a packet. Pressings, solids and lees all play their part completing the picture. The wines are carefully maintained in oak bariques before being bottled unfiltered.
The Nebbiolo fruit was basket pressed, juice assembled then racked to barrel with some solids retained. Left on skins for 15 minutes or so. Fermentation was allowed to proceed using wild yeast in old barriques at medium temperature. Malolactic was arresed and on completion of fermetantion/clarification the wine was racked to stainless steel.
Wow what a Rose! Super dry, nice and savoury with excellent complexity. A lovely delicate salmon pink colour. Flavours of red berries, floral notes, orange peel, even some stonefruits in the mix. Finish is savoury, refreshing, crisp and dry. An absolute cracker of a Rose.
