ROSEWOOD ESTATE WINERY FOLLOW THE WHITE RABBIT 2017

Wine Region: Niagara Peninsula, Niagara, Ontario, Canada

Grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Gris

Tasting Notes

After noticing the brilliant straw colour, the nose comes leaping from the glass; notes of ripe stone fruit, citrus, pear, fresh white flower, with limestone and light herbal notes. On the palate the texture is surprisingly mouth coating, while the bright acidity is noticed as the finish slowly fades, leaving your mouth watering for more. Enjoy chilled.

Ratings

93 points, Jamie Goode. 70% oak fermented with wild yeast in large puncheons, and 30% in stainless steel. Pinot Gris had 48 h skin contact. It will be unfiltered. Very mineral and a bit nutty with nice spiciness and some grainy structure. Has a bit of apple too. Textured and really mineral with some oxidative hints, but it works so well. Really textural.

About the Winery

Earth to Bottle - As farmers of flavours, everything we do in the vineyard is in pursuit of great flavour, concentration and balance in the grapes grown. At the same time, we want to ensure we are looking after our little piece of the world. We want our impact on the natural environment and our surroundings to be negligible.

In the cellar, our philosophy is to do everything we can to allow the flavours of each individual vineyard block show through. Our two estate vineyards are unique to us, and we want to capture the flavours of these vineyards to project their uniqueness through the wines. To achieve this we take a hands off approach in the winery. We practice gentle processing, indigenous yeast (wild) when possible, careful use of oak, and minimal manipulation of the wine. We use a combination of modern technology and traditional old world techniques to help us  handcraft premium wines that reflect the terroir.
