ColourPale Salmon with light pink hues
AromaIntense florals, punchy red berries and ripe orange citrus tones.
PalateTextural with great length and power, the fruit flavours come through from the nose. Intensity, focus and weight are all attributes of this dry style of Rosé.
Growing ConditionsLittle rainfall and a warm winter resulted in early bud burst for the region. The region recorded lower than average rainfall throughout the growing season resulting in an early vintage. Fruit quality was high with no disease pressure. With crops being slightly lower than average, harvest was around 8 days earlier than normal, with pristine fruit showing great intensity.
Vinification/MaturationFruit was allocated to the Rosé and picked to produce this style of wine. Picked early in the day, crushed and chilled to press, where four hours of skin contact occurred, before the valves were opened and the juice was allowed to drain. This time on skins allowed for lovely blush colour pickup and flavour extraction to occur. There the juice was settled, fined then racked and warmed for fermentation, 80% in Stainless Steel and 20% put to wood for indigenous fermentation. After fermentation the wine was blended and bottled without fining.

In a wine region prone to wet weather like the Hunter Valley, vintage can be a trying time. With their eyes on the skies, the Mount Pleasant Winemakers endeavour to predict and plan around the seasonal uncertainty. But it is these challenging conditions that make the Hunter Valley a wine region like no other and that’s why we’re Singing in the Rain.
