Family Tree Merry Widow Rose by Speck Brothers

2021 Family Tree The Merry Widow Rosé

Regular price $16.95


The Merry Widow Rosé is a colourful wine (not just because of the vibrant colour, but also because of the "lively" family history). Living to the ripe old age of 44 yrs, 6 mths and 22 days, Catharine out-lived her philandering husband Henry who had a secret love-child with a lady Snurr in the next village. Catharine forgave Henry but we imagine her doing a little dance after his 'sudden' passing.

Winemaker's Notes

  • A light strawberry pink colour with aromas of fresh cherries. Flavours of red cherry and tropical fruits.
  • Skin contact of 3 hours provides vibrant colour.
  • Fermented at cold temperatures of 14-16°C in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fruit’s delicacy and freshness.
  • Soils are a combination of lacustrine silty clay, and lacustrine silty clay over clay loam till.
