Raymond Chan Wine Reviews - 4 Stars
"The nose is fresh with firmly packed and intense aroma of strawberries and cream and a little raspberry fruit, with lifted red florals. The fruit is vibrant and mouthwatering, unfolding hints of confectionary. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a fine and elegantly concentrated, deep, core of strawberries, and raspberries and cream, along with bright red floral notes. The palate is refreshing and vigorous with bright acidity, and a thirst-quenching, dry, fine-textured line. The wine flows with good linearity, leading to a long, mouth-wateringly dry finish of strawberries, raspberries and cherries.
Bright watermelon pink in colour, this Rosé is brimming with gorgeous raspberry, strawberry and red cherry aromas.The palate is fresh and juicy with bright red berry flavours and a dash of delicate spice. It has a nice balance and a dry, fruit filled finish.
Every JT Rosé, begins it’s life in the middle of the night, with the harvesting of the fruit in the cool temperatures of the first few hours of the day. At the winery I quickly crush the grapes and then hold the freshly released juice in contact with the grape skins for a precise amount of time. This “time on skins” allows the bright red colours and delightful aromas found only in the skins of the grapes to infuse into the juice. This is the key step to making a good Rosé. Following this the juice was gently pressed and allowed to settle for 48 hours. After racking off the lees, I then kicked off a long and cool fermentation with a selected yeast strain. The wine was then protein and cold-stabilised and and sealed it with a screw cap to lock in its fresh fruit flavours.
