Day 5 – Omertà Rosé

Day 5 and you are in for a treat!

Sold out since the spring, we’ve managed to cobble together enough bottles of one of our most sought-after wines: Omertà rosé. In order to pull this off, we’ve had to split the vintages between 2019 and 2020, so check your calendar to see which one you received. Both vintages were made from 100% Syrah, and both are dry and packed with flavours.

Winemaking Notes

A crisp, dry Provençale-style rosé made from 100% Syrah. The delicate, pale pink salmon 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.

Tasting Profile: 2019 Vintage

The exuberant 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 rich flavours of raspberry, pomegranate and rhubarb.  Crisp acidity with only the slightest hint of sweetness, this wine finishes dry.

Tasting Profile: 2020 Vintage

This fruit-forward wine has amazing depth and complexity. The vibrant nose has aromas of crabapple, watermelon, wild strawberries, and cherries. On the palate, the entry is bright and juicy, dominated by rich flavours of wild red berries, rhubarb and lime zest.  Crisp acidity with a faint hint of white pepper, this wine finishes dry.

Food Pairings

Refreshing on its own, our rosé is also a highly versatile wine on the table. The textural complexity, rich flavour and crisp acidity enables Omertà to pair well with many different dishes: Nicoise salad, grilled lemon-garlic prawns and paella come 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.
