2018 Eye of the Partridge

$28 buy »

Eye of the Partridge is a unique creation, neither a white nor a Rosé. Estate red Pinot Noir fruit was hand selected and harvested early with a lower brix to highlight crisp acidity, then crafted using the "Pressurage direct" method - The most traditional way to make rosé wine and, purists would argue, the best. After fermenting in stainless steel, this wine rested in neutral oak before bottling. The result is a full-bodied and crisp wine that resembles a pale rosé. Stonefruit and honeycomb draw you into the glass, leading to lemon verbena and peaches. The fruit is balanced by lovely minerality, acidity for a full-bodied white wine
