Tiki Estate Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2011 Print E-mail

2011 tiki estate marlborough pr small

COLOUR  A vibrant salmon  pink with delicate  purple hues.

NOSE A delicious  combination of ripe strawberry and dark cherry dominates the nose. Sweet fruit aromas are supported by an estery fermentation bouquet derived  from the use of specific yeasts that enhance the aromatics  of rosé wines.

PALATE Fresh summer fruit flavours are enveloped by soft, mouth-filling phenolics, well balanced by a refreshing acidity. The perfect combination of these components has created a wine of intense flavour that has  fullness and great length.

VINEYARD REGION The fruit for this wine was sourced 100 per cent from our Rewa Vineyard in the Upper Wairau Valley, Marlborough.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS The weather conditions of the 2011 vintage were ideal to optimise  the attributes of our Rewa Vineyard. The large diurnal fluctuation in temperatures provided perfect  conditions for creating
intense flavours while retaining fine acidity and elegance.

WINEMAKING The fruit was harvested during the evening in the cool of autumn to ensure the essence of the vineyard was captured. After being gently de-stemmed, the Pinot Noir
fruit was allowed to cold soak for 24 hours  to extract  the beautiful colour and the essence of the fruit flavours that are the hallmarks of this wine. Fermentation was carried out at low temperatures with yeast strains selected  from the south of France for their  ability to enhance rosé flavours and mouth feel.
