THE TECHNICAL STUFF:
“The Aphrodite” 2018 Touriga Rosé was made from a relatively new variety to the Hunter Valley, Touriga Nacional. The variety originates from Portugal where it is commonly used in blending and fortified wines. These young vines were grafted just over five years ago. The fruit was machine harvested and crushed before spending eight hours on skins prior to draining. The juice was inoculated using X5 yeast and fermented in a fermentation drum. The resulting wine showed beautiful bright red fruit flavours and aromas and minimal intervention ensured that these characteristics were retained in the final product. The wine was fined using vegan friendly finings and was filtered prior to being bottled.
