Is this a Pinot ‘gris’ style or Pinot ‘grigio’ style? The latter, dear reader, the latter. We deliberately pick the fruit at the lower end of its acceptable range to retain the quintessential crisp, light, fine qualities of both the variety & the region.
We like our rosé fresh and lively - which is why it’s based on Sangiovese... famed for its crisp acidity and bright aromas and flavours. Floozie will no doubt make for a happier human race – or at least for a few select members who partake of this wine!
Every winery needs an attention seeking, exaggerated, overly emotional, dramatic, diva. Sometimes it’s the winemaker, sometimes the boss, or sometimes a family member! Fortunately not here, so we had to create one.
Goldilocks is as ever, not too heavy and not too light! Low in alcohol, with palate-friendly sweetness, balanced fresh acidity, and a little fizz. Pale pink with orange hints – and tiny bubbles, evidence of the spritz retained at bottling.
James Halliday - "Full-bodied, entirely in the black fruit and licorice spectrum, forbidding but compelling. Strong tannins are made to measure."
James Halliday - "Very different from the Black Blood I, more open and fragrant, the medium to full-bodied palate with a mix of red and black fruits, supple and rich, with perfectly weighted tannins."
