Helen’s Hill “Lana’s” Rosé 2017

$28.00

It is with great pleasure that we introduce the newest addition to the Helen’s Hill wine range; Lana’s Rose’. As with all wines made under the Helen’s Hill label, the newest arrival follows our maniacal attention to detail in both the vineyard and the winery. And of course, it is made from 100% Single Vineyard fruit for the patch of dirt we call home.

Hand picked at harvest, the fruit is gently pressed off skins to extract the minimal of colour. The juice is then fermented for approximately 4 weeks in old French oak barrels to add both texture and complexity to the final wine. After primary fermentation, the wine is matured in stainless steel tanks to maintain a fresh, clean finish.

The colour of the wine is iridescent pink with hints of bright copper. The nose is a mixture of wild berries, strawberry and hibiscus. The palate is true to the nose displaying a wonderful array of wild berries, strawberry and flora characters. The mouth feel is enhanced by complexity and texture from time in old oak. The finish is dry and fresh, making the wine devilishly food friendly.

As is our tradition, all of the wines made under the Helens Hill label carry a unique name. As a rule, the name is derived from the location of the special vines that supply the fruit that make the Helen’s Hill wines. In this case, I have named the wine after my daughter. So, I am making an “exception to the rule”. A phrase that captures the true essence of my daughter.
