Everflyht Rose de Saignée 2019 is a blend of Pinot Noir and Meunier; hand-picked from their single estate vineyard. The wine reflects our idea of field to bottle where the grapes are picked together and handcrafted in the winery. This produces a wine that tells the story of not just the vintage but of the varities as well. This traditional method wine has been aged on the lees for 18 months. The wine has an intense pink colour and is bold with a fruit forward profile of ripe summer red fruit and strawberry shortcake. The Rose de Saignée 2019 is made up of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Pinot Meunier.
The nose is full of ripe cherry with soft undertones of strawberry and raspberry in the mid profile. Complexity and structure round off the profile with cream, butter, and fresh brioche note.
The palate is fruit driven with notes of ripe red cherry and sweet wild strawberry with a soft backbone of cream. Light brioche and hints of biscuit form the profile edge. A light acidity is balanced with a rounded mouth feel that gives the wine weight and an elegant finish.
Food pairing recommendations would be to drink on warm days sunny days and pair with fresh shellfish, lobster or sweet aromatic Asian dishes.
