2020 Jenny Dobson 'Patsy' Rosé, Hawke's Bay
Patsy - life is for living.
My favourite Aunt Patsy - joyous and vibrant, with a sense of mischief and a determination to make the most out of her life.
This Rosé is my tribute to her.
Stepping away from the traditional handling of Cabernet Franc, I have made a Rosé by whole bunch pressing, handpicked Cabernet Franc grown on Lesley’s vineyard in the Bridge Pa Triangle. The pale juice was fermented to give a vibrant, dry, texturally rich Rosé with lingering flavours and aromas of summer peach, greengage and dried “herbes de Provence”.
Celebrate with Patsy, and enjoy the moment.
