Jess Dry Rose 2014

This sophisticated Jess dry Rosè has been produced since 2007 and has become a favourite! It is a wine with a delicious bouquet that over-delivers on quality. Jess is light bodied and lovely to enjoy with a meal or by itself.

The wine was named after the owner’s eldest daughter, Jessica Lee – on her 16th Birthday. The wine is characterized by its crisp style and fruity palate.

 

Tasting Notes

Explosion of ripe red cherries, watermelon and strawberry, combined with red summer fruit flavours on the nose followed a smooth, mouth watering finish.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes are specially harvested for Rose production at different sugar levels. The components of Jess are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks to enhance the options for the final blend. The juice is treated like a white wine and fermented with no lees contact nor malolactic fermentation. The wine was bottled mid April 2014.
