Double Door Merlot Rosé 2019

Winemakers Notes

The Double Door Range introduces wines that are made from a mix of estate grapes and grapes brought in from neighbouring farms.

This gives us the chance to be creative and produce wines that have their own distinctive style.

This 2019 vintage of our Rose is made from the youngest Merlot Block on the farm giving us beautiful Cherry fruit and strawberry fruit pop on the nose, a full body with Raspberry lingering on the finish

In the Cellar

The Merlot juice was drawn off the skins after 12 hours of skin contact and fermented in Stainless steel. This small portion of wine was then aged on gross lees for 2 months to add weight to the palate and complexity to the wine before bottling.

The wine was only lightly filtered on bottling so there may be evidence of crystals in the bottle.
