Our vow of silence. Trust us.
A crisp, dry Provençal-style rosé made from 100% Syrah. The delicate pale pink hue of this rosé perfectly disguises the vibrancy that lies within. Hand picked and hand sorted, the wine was gently whole-cluster pressed over a 4-hour period. A 7-day period of Stabulation followed, where the juice was left on the gross lees and stirred twice daily before the onset of fermentation. Only free-run juice made its way into this wine.
This fruit-forward wine has amazing depth and complexity. The vibrant nose has the hallmark aromas of wild strawberries, cherries and a hint of watermelon. On the palate, the entry is bright and juicy, dominated by wild red berries and rhubarb. Crisp acidity with only the slightest hint of sweetness, this wine finishes dry. Tartrate crystals may precipitate out of the wine once chilled; this is a natural occurrence.
Refreshing on its own, our rosé is also a highly versatile wine on the table. The textural complexity, deep flavour and crisp acidity enables Omertà to pair well with many different dishes. Fresh market salads, grilled fish and aged cheese comes to mind. Want to see the versatility of this rosé? Try it with a sous vide duck breast, finished in a hot skillet and served with a pink peppercorn sauce.
