Wirra Wirra Mrs Wigley Grenache Rose CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia
Mrs Wigley was a particular pussycat who was born at the neighbouring Petrucci residence. Within days her mum had dragged the litter to settle in the Wirra Wirra open fermenters, from then on Mrs Wigley became a permanent feature of the Wirra Wirra cellars. Mrs Wigley, the Rosé, is made by running the juices off, tinted after brief contact on skins, from the grapes, then cold fermenting and bottling early, as you would prefer to do when designing a refreshing, revitalizing pink wine.

Wirra Wirra have been making wine since the 1890s, the current team know their vines well and have determined Grenache to be the varietal of choice for a juicy pink wine. Grapes are harvested and crushed, de-stemmed and chilled to traditional red wine fermenters, pumped over throughout the vinification and held cold prior to being pressed off when the desired pink hue and vibrant flavours are achieved. After cold settling for a number of days to clarify the unfermented juice, batches are racked off solids and fermented through the action of aromatic yeasts for two or three weeks, before being sent directly to bottling without any exposure to oak, preserving the freshness and lifted fruit of fine Mclaren Vale Grenache.
Salmon colour with bright red hues. A perfumed bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, strawberries and cream supported by fragrant rose petals and sweet spice. Fresh and ripe crushed strawberries and red cherries contribute to fruit depth and length. The refreshing acidity provides balance and structure and leads to a dry and crisp finish. Best consumed whilst young and fresh. A bliss with prosciutto and fig.
