2014 Filly’s Folly Zinfandel Rosé

Sure to please those who liked the 2012.  Drinking very nicely at present and will continue to delight with age because it is a well structured wine.

We grow our single vineyard grapes for flavour with particular attention to soil health using minimal chemical input.

The grapes were hand-picked and cold pressed.

Our winemaker Dylan Arvidson stopped the ferment early, and bottled the wine chilled to retain a pleasant frizz.

TASTING NOTES

If you like raspberry juice this it!

Attractive aroma dominated by berry fruits that follow through to the palate.

Sweetness dominates the taste with a good crisp acid that allows a lingering fruity finish without cloying.   

Strong volume of flavour, sweet but well balanced.  Enjoy (keep it away from the kids!).

WINEMAKING COMMENTS

The fermentation was stopped with a combination of chilling and sulfer dioxide when the balance between alcohol and sugar was reached leaving the wine balanced and approachable. The tank was sealed and sparged with CO2 and then left to settle for a week and racked while chilled to around 2 deg Celsius. Inline CO2 sparging was used during all wine transfers to retain the dissolved gas. It was bottled while chilled as soon as possible to retain the gas and freshness of the wine. The colder the wine is the better it absorbs and holds onto the dissolved gas.
