Tasting notes from the winery for Pogue Vineyard Rose 2020
Winemakers notes: This wine is made with 100% Shiraz grapes sourced from the Pogue vineyard, Toolamba in Central Victoria. The vineyard is 135 acres of prime viticultural land with extensive Goulburn River frontage. The grapes were harvested in the cool of night. They were crushed and destemmed then left to soak to extract colour before pressing. The winemaker utilised a specially selected organic yeast strain and fermentation was held at low temperatures in stainless steel for maximum retention of primary fruit flavours. The finished wine is vibrant, full of bright red berry and soft herb aromas. The palate is textural yet wonderfully refreshing.
Harvest notes: The Summer of 2020 will be remembered for the devastating bushfires throughout Southern Queensland, coastal NSW and Eastern Victoria. Thankfully there were no fires in Central Victoria so our vineyard in Toolamba was unaffected. The temperatures fluctuated heavily throughout the season, but picking continued producing good flavours in the whites, and terrific colours in the reds - not unusual for a dry growing season but mostly testament to our diligent team in the vineyard.
Tasting Notes: This appealing rosé is loaded with the aromas of vibrant ripe red berries. A lovely textural wine, full of bright summer fruit flavours of strawberries, sweet ripe pears, freshly picked rasberries and soft green herbs. All layered upon a clean, refreshingly long palate.
