Holden Manz Wines
Holden Manz Rothko Rosé 2022
Winter 2021 saw good rainfall and plenty of cold days. The growing season was characterized by cool temperatures and regular rains until December. January and February were hot and dry then the rain returned in March which made harvest testing. Rosé grapes were harvested under great conditions in February.
The wine is made in true Provençal style. Dry and fruit-driven, the wine is made from 57% Grenache, 22% Syrah, 21% cinsault. Whole bunch pressed under dry ice using the Champagne press cycle, average skin contact time is less than 3 hours. This maximises extraction of fruit flavours while minimizing colour transfer. Picked on various dates between 14 and February and 2 March 2022. Bottled 18 May 2022.
