2018 Sandpiper Mataro Rose

Comments

Lovely bright salmon pink colour. Delicate strawberry notes on the nose. Tight acid on the palate with hints of Strawberry and herbs. Very approachable palette.

 

 

Vinification Notes

Harvest was carried out at night.  The fruit was left on skins for a short period and then pressed (using an airbag press). Care was taken not to lose the delicate aromas and flavour pre-cursors in the juice. 

Post fermentation the wine was stabilised, minimally fined, filtered then bottled.

 

 

 

Vintage Notes

The 2018 growing season had all the hallmarks of a classic vintage. Consistent warm temperatures produced perfect conditions for our red varieties to ripen. This along with good winter rains and a dry harvest period resulted in wines with great depth of varietal flavours, excellent tannin structure and colour along with a long balanced finish. Reds from 2018 will age well due to their intense concentration and power.
