Waterford Rose-Mary 2018

Waterford Rose-Mary 2018

A wine produced by whole bunch pressing various red grape varietals, this giving the wine a lovely transparent pink colour. The aroma is minerally driven with delicate raspberry fruit undertones. The natural acidity from the different mediteranean varietals add a lovely soft texture to the wine and provides for a crisp and fresh finish.

The perfect low alcohol wine to be enjoyed alongside summer dishes.

3 rd year of extreme drought, this very noticeable in the natural vegetation and low dam levels. Low winter rains, followed by near perfect growing conditions, moderate temperatures and lack of heat waves during harvest. Vineyards remained very healthy and produced lovely bunches, smaller than usual giving concentration. Wines are extremely classical in style, with tight tannin structures and lovely acidities. Reds are going to be great talking points in the future.
