Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The first Rosily wine to be produced using fully certified organic fruit grown on the Rosily vineyard. The Sauvignon Blanc fruit was particularly flavoursome this year, with passionfruit and lychee evident in the more sun-exposed bunches, and distinctive grassy flavours in the more shaded bunches. Full sugar ripeness was matched with great natural acidity, perhaps due to the combination of a dry growing season (the third driest on record at Rosily) and the cooler than average ripening season through January and February.
Winemaker Notes
Hand harvested, then crushed, destemmed and chilled before pressing. Only free run juice and light pressings retained for Rosily wine; medium and heavy pressings removed. Oak treatment: 10% Barrel matured for 2 months in French Oak (100% new)
