Rocker Box Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

In many areas of Central Otago where water was scarce, gold miners used rocker boxes. Miners poured water slowly over sand and silt at the top of the sloping box, gently rocking the box like a cradle to wash and trap alluvial gold.

Light salmon in colour. Aromas of wild strawberries and ripe raspberries. This dry, structured style features flavours reminiscent of juicy watermelon, strawberries and raspberries with a long creamy finish.

Food match: Seafood, light salads, light pasta dishes

Wine making notes
Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested on the 17th of April 2021 at 22.5 Brix from Three Miners Vineyard, near Alexandra. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and then allowed to settle overnight. The juice was settled for 24 hours and then racked to two tanks and fermentation begun using various inoculated yeasts. The juice was fermented cool to retain flavour and the fermentation stopped once flavour, sugar and acid balance was reached.
