Nepenthe Altitude Pinot Noir Rosé 2020
The 2020 growing season began very warmly, experiencing extreme heat in the early days.
The temperatures dropped during January and February and then developed into typical mild days and cool evenings pattern which allowed for great fruit ripening and great acid retention.
The Pinot Noir fruit was picked in the cool of the night and pressed as soon as it arrived at the winery.
The juice was then clarified.
Two different yeast strains were added to ensure phenomenal lifted red fruit character and an excellent mouthfeel.
Once the fermentation was complete the wine was filtered and bottled to ensure purity and freshness.
