2017 Sibling Rivalry Pink

2017 Sibling Rivalry Pink

Regular price $13.95

Description

The missing link between Red and White or night and day. This final addition to the Sibling Rivalry trio brings Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Merlot to the table in a hardy pink blend around which both men and women can finally unite. Behind its handsome bad boy demeanour is a blend that offers a melange of summer's cool and winter's heat. Is it a red that drinks like a white? A white that drinks like a red? Or is it just a manly pink wine?

Winemaker's Notes

• Yields 3.5 tonnes per acre 
• Grapes are crushed and allowed to draw colour from the skins for 48 hours before pressing the juice off and fermenting in stainless steel tanks
• Bottling in the early spring following harvest preserves the fruit character of the grapes
