65% Merlot, 35% Viognier 86 cases produced
A co-fermentation of Merlot/Viognier entirely stomped by foot made and aged as a red wine. After a short two day maceration the red fruit was pressed onto the Viognier and completed fermentation on the skins. The wine was aged in barrel for 15 months before bottling in 2017 and then remained in barrel for a further 26 months until it’s release in 2021. A highly unusual way of producing a rose.
Amber in colour, aromatically complex, with deep texture, this is a rose that ages very well. Tickled Pink hits it’s stride 8 to 10 years after harvest and evolves into a wine of wisdom and expression.
