Lost Boy Pinot Noir Rose 2020

Tasting Notes

Rosé is like recreation: both should be taken seriously. This Provence-inspired Rosé of Pinot Noir is an elegant, bright, and tastefully fruity testament to the rugged mountainside Pinot grapes found on the southernmost tip of Africa. Only 500 bottles produced.

Harvested by hand on the 12th of February, 2020 in the late afternoon on a cool, cloudy day at 22.8 degrees balling. The grapes spent the night in a refrigerated room for 24 hours of cold maceration. On the 13th of February, the 1T of Pinot Noir grapes were de-stemmed (no crushing) and hand pressed in a wooden basket press, 200kg’s at a time. Juice was transferred to a 600L stainless steel tank overnight for cold settling, before being racked to 600L egg tank with a cooling probe at the top. Inoculated with Alchemy IV yeast and gently guided through a cold and slow ferment lasting 14 days and never going above 17 degrees Celsius. The minimal skin contact, cold/slow ferment with a fruit-focused yeast, and slow-ripened grapes with beautiful acidity all come together to create a stunning, Provence-inspired Rosé.

    Excellent buy in the price range. Surprising fuller bodied than most rose. Great florals and flavor with an excellent finish. Great chilled wine on a warm fall day.
