La Sevillana Rosé
Producent: Leconfield & Richard Hamilton Wines
We wanted to capture the elegance of Merlot in this wine through cool night harvesting. No pressing was used in the extracting of juice, producing a lightly coloured and elegant wine. 75% of the juice was treated as an aromatic white – cold settled, racked with low solids and cold fermented using an aromatic yeast. The other 25% was fermented with whole solids and natural yeast at a warmer temperature, then allowed to partially undergo malo-lactic fermentation to promote mouthfeel and length. The wine was stored on light lees, then received a light fining before stabilising, filtration and bottling in July 2019.
