Notes

Black Cottage Rosé was inspired by founder, Dave Clouston’s long stints in Corsica and the South of France where he crafted fresh, crisp, dry, light pink rosé wines. With a long drawn-out summer, without excessive heat waves, our grapes were allowed to gain physiological ripeness at lower than normal sugar levels. Our harvest decisions were made purely on flavour rather brix levels. The wines are light on their feet with expressive aromatics, great energy, and fresh lively acidity with a tight structure on the palate. Treated as a white wine in the cellar, this rosé was fermented cold in stainless steel tank.
