2024 Bird in Hand Pinot Rosé

Regular price AU $23.00

2024 vintage was characterised by a wet winter, mild to warm spring, accelerating budburst and a warm, dry summer that promoted rapid shoot growth. Gentle canopy management and mild rainfall leading up to harvest, ensured even ripening and great acid retention.

Made predominantly using Pinot Noir, sourced from multiple cool sites across the greater Adelaide region to capture a spectrum of fruit flavours.  Following ideal cool, dry ripening conditions the fruit was picked during the coldest part of the late summer evenings.  Fruit was destemmed and spent two to four hours on skins to extract flavour and a hint of colour. It was then tank-fermented to maintain the delicate floral and berry characteristics and maintain high natural acidity.  

The 2024 Pinot Rosé has lifted strawberry, wild raspberry, and blossom aromas with a vibrant, pale pink colour from brief skin contact.  Complex texture and fruit weight on the mid-palate perfectly balances the natural acidity and minerality, with saline and limestone notes for an outstanding finish.

Best enjoyed young and always accompanied by great food and friends. Whether you’re looking for an exquisite match to magnificent seafood and salads, dreaming of endless lazy summer sipping or seeking a perfect aperitif accompaniment to BBQ’d antipasto, our Pinot Rosé will go down a treat.
