Grapes are crushed and treated to an air bag press in the protective presence of SO2. Enzyme is added and the juices cold settled over the course of a week before being racked off settled solids into fermenters and inoculated to choice yeasts. A long, cool vinification, pressings and free run are separately fermented, assembled back into the free runs for fining and cold stabilisation. Fermented to dry at less than a gram of sugar per litre, Tar & Roses is fashioned to a food friendly style of crisp fruit freshness and enhanced varietal complexity.
Pale gold hues. Lifted bouquet, overflowing with orange and quince blossom, hints of mint and thyme. An impeccably structured palate, lime cordial and apple pie, seasoned by a touch of clove, deliciously mouthfilling, lemon and lime flavours that take you all the way to a crisp, dry, lingering finish, refreshing, graceful yet substantial enough to serve alongside roast pork with the lot.
