The resilience of the Tumblong Hills vineyard was on show in 2019; a mostly hot and dry vintage across the continent. Overall fruit yield was down, thus harvest 7 to 10-days earlier than average, though through prudent water and canopy management, grape quality was outstanding. Sugar levels were moderate, while acid and pH levels were unexpectedly good. Generally, vintage 2019 at Tumblong Hills delivered wines with bright fruit power, moderate alcohol levels and fresh integrated fruit acid profiles.
Harvested on 14 February and handpicked to minimise colour and phenolic influence. Immediate removal of juice from skins via whole bunch pressing created a light and delicate Rosé. Reductively handled through to bottle, protective practices were implemented to preserve the wine’s purity and beauty.
Total acidity: 5.6 g/Litre
Residual sugar: 2.2 g/Litre
