Wines / Quails' Gate / Rosé

Rosé

Rosé wines have a reputation for being enjoyable but not overly intellectual. At Quails’ Gate we think this wine can be both serious and fun. Made in a versatile dry style, our Rosé is fresh and fruit-forward, with enough balance and depth to intrigue a true connoisseur. A classic summer sipper that delivers exceptional flavour and value.

Tasting & Pairing

The first experience of this wine is its gorgeous pale pink hue. Out of the glass come aromas of sweet strawberry and watermelon, citrus pomelo and grapefruit, and bright fresh cranberry, rhubarb and red currant. On the palate these sweet, citrus and tart notes develop into broad red fruit with medium weight and acid. Light, fruity and satisfying from the bright entry to the refreshing, crisp finish.

Nothing pairs with Rosé like dining al fresco. Perfect for sharing on the patio, at a picnic or poolside, this wine reflects a hint of summer even when the weather keeps you inside and looking out. Pair with fresh, seasonal, high quality ingredients prepared simply: pizza, Caprese salad, melon and prosciutto or spinach and strawberry salad.

Winemaking

The 2019 vintage is comprised of 39% Gamay, 34% Gewürztraminer, 12.5% PInot Noir, 12.5% Pinot Meunier and 2% Pinot Gris. After harvest, the grapes received 4 hours of skin-contact for colour before being pressed off. Each varietal was fermented separately in stainless steel at cool temperatures before being expertly blended by our winemaking team.
