Bartier Brothers Rose 2020
The Rosé 2020 is a gorgeous soft pink, but the flavours and aromas are anything but soft. Aromas of strawberry and watermelon with hints of floral jump out of the glass and you will discover intense flavours of strawberry, watermelon, and rhubarb with minerality.
The Rosé 2020 was hand harvested from our Cerqueira Vineyard and Summerland Vineyard. The Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer were whole cluster pressed and then fermented with a cultured yeast at 16C. The Merlot was crushed and then went through a 17 day maceration with a cultured yeast. The Rosé spent 4.5 months in stainless steel sur lees.
