2017 Streicker Bridgeland Block Rose
A light pink wine with salmon tones and aromas of cherries, plum blossom and subtle brioche and dried herb hints. The palate has a crunchy entry of natural acidity, red berries and candied apples. The wine is dry and succulent, with textural tones of eastern spice, strawberries and rose water leading to a quenching mineral finish.
Winemaking note: The Shiraz fruit is crushed and cold pressed immediately in order to extract only the slightest amount colour and only the purest fragrances and textures from the skins. The juice is cold settled prior to fermentation at low temperatures in barrel. Our aim is to preserve freshness and capture aromatics, while developing texture and complexity in oak. When fermentation was complete, the wine was then racked off of its lees to stainless steel before stabilising and bottling in July of the vintage.
