2010 Rosé

This is a great patio wine for sipping on its own or paired with a number of lighter dishes. This Rosé is always a staff favourite at Fielding!

A fun and versatile wine, this Rosé was crafted to be both rich and refreshing. Pale salmon in color with fresh aromas of wild strawberries, watermelon, tangerine, McIntosh apple, and sweet red pepper jelly. Good flavour and well balanced on the palate; this wine has nice length of finish and should be served chilled.

Each of the grape varieties selected for this wine were pressed off their skins following 24-48 hours of cold-soaking, then the juice was cold settled for another three days. The juice was fermented at cool temperatures using selected yeasts in stainless steel, followed by aging for two months on its lees in stainless steel. Cold stabilized, sterile filtered and bottled early in 2011.
