Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Honest John’s Rose is vibrant pink in colour and has an intense and complex nose filled with sweet aromas of strawberry, grapefruit, watermelon, and hints of apricot. These flavours continue strongly onto the palate where there are juicy strawberry and cherry notes framed in a rich, mouth-filling palate with a long, clean, elegant finish. The wine offers pure freshness and hedonistic pleasure and pairs well with Pacific Rim Cuisine and your patio on a hot day. We can thank the old vines and the great vineyards for the exceptional intensity and length in this value driven wine.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 growing season was long, dry and warm, much like the previous 3 vintages. The grapes primarily came from vineyards owned by Road 13, with well-established vines. During harvest the grapes were sampled bi-weekly to measure flavour development and sugar content. Each variety was picked at its optimal point of flavour development.
Production Notes
During vintage, the grapes for the 2016 Honest John’s Rose were all hand sorted, destemmed and crushed into small vessels where they underwent a 48 hour soak on skins to gently extract colour. They were then pressed and the juice settled overnight before a long, cool fermentation to ensure the wine’s intensely fruity aromas were maximized. The final blend was assembled in December, 2016, and the wine was bottled in early February of 2017.

An excellent choice for a cold patio drink. Great with sea food or curries.
