Stoney Range Saignée Pinot Noir Rosé 2015

Stoney Range Saignée Pinot Noir Rosé

The 2016 Saignée Pinot Noir Rosé is refreshing and full of flavour with aromas of citrus, cherry and a touch of spice.  The palate is lively and vibrant with wild strawberry flavours and a lingering dry finish.

This is a delightfully refreshing wine that is able to accompany just about any food from delicate fish to rich sauces.  Best served chilled and enjoyed over the next two to three years.

Winemaking

After 2 days on skins 5% of the lightly coloured Pinot Noir juice was racked off the skins (Saignee) and put through a cool fermentation. The selected parcels were then blended and aged on lees for a further 3 months. The wine was then lightly fined, filtered and bottled.
