Liv Zak Pinot Rosé 2018


96 Points - James Halliday Wine Companion 2020

Ready to drink now, this Rose is soft and elegant with a lovely plush texture brimming with bright red berry fruits and plump cherries.

Soft and elegant. There is a lovely plush texture brought by the delicate tannin, which supports the bright red berry fruits. The finish is long and refreshing like plump Christmas cherries.

Winemakers Comments

Whole bunch pressed with a short period of skin contact in
the press. Wild fermented in old barrels with full solids. No
additions apart from a very small amount of sulphur dioxide
at bottling.

Vintage Description

2017 Vintage in Coldstream was mild, steady and relatively
drawn out. A cool, wet Spring led to delayed budburst and
flowering, pushing harvest out later than recent years to more tradition timings. This long and steady ripening produced wines with wonderful elegance and poise across all varieties, each displaying great range of aroma and flavour. A truly rare and stunning vintage for Warramunda, for Coldstream and for the Yarra Valley.
