Johanna Dry Rosé 2017

From a young age, Johanna worked in the vineyards of Muratie, but never without a song on her lips. Now happily retired, she continues to bring beauty to the farm – by arranging the flowers in the manor house and cellar. This lively and fruity yet dry rosé celebrates a tenacious woman, overflowing with personality, who embodies the honesty and passion of Muratie and its people.

Tasting Notes:

VINEYARD

Produced from Pinot Noir grapes from vines planted at 280m above sea-level yielding 8 tonnes per hectare.

VINIFICATION

This unique Rosé is made from mostly Pinot Noir grapes which are hand-picked, hand-selected and then gently crushed, destalked and pressed straight away. The juice of our Rosé has been left on the skins for 5 hours which gives it a beautiful blush pink colour. Cold fermentation allows us to produce a fruity, yet dry Rosé.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS

The wine has sweet red berries and even a little candyfloss on the nose, but it’s perfectly dry on the palate. Red cherry and tart cranberry flavours along with a pinch of mixed herbs make it a versatile match for summery, salady alfresco fare.

ANALYSIS

Alcohol 12.22 %
Residual Sugar 4.8 g/l
Total acid 6.9 g/l
pH 3.20
