2017 Sibling Rivalry Pink

2017 Sibling Rivalry Pink

Regular price $13.95


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
