Crushed & Cured

Solara, Rosé, Viile Timisului, Romania, 2022


Lively raspberry and floral aromas, with crisp, festive strawberry, Gala apple and spice flavours that rally toward the zesty finish.

The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed, before being chilled to 8°C for 8 hour maceration. 20 % of the juice in each tank was drained for rose, before being decanted for 24 hours and inoculated with selected yeasts for fermentation in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks for 4 weeks at 12°C. Fermentation was stopped by cooling to 0°C, with a residual sugar of 4.5 g/l to give a rounded finish.
