Leconfield Coonawarra Rose 2018

Soft, textural, dry and complex. Rose petal, red fruits including strawberry and watermelon. Winemaker Paul Gordon ran 2 separate ferments here … one like an aromatic white ferment … where juice was cold settled, racked with low solids and cold fermented using an aromatic yeast. The other 25% was fermented with whole solids and natural yeast at a warmer temperature, then allowed to undergo malo-lactic fermentation to promote mouthfeel and length. The end result is stunning and very complex.
