Fruit is sourced from neighboring properties in the northern Yallingup sub-region of Margaret River. Direct input from Forester’s viticulturist ensures well balanced canopies and crops are grown for the desired style. The 2018 vintage was a mild year in Margaret River, allowing plenty of time during February and March to ripen the fruit to our specification.
The grapes were harvested early in the morning, then sent directly to the winery for processing where the free run juice was separated from the skins immediately to limit colour and phenolic extraction. The very clean clarified juice was fermented at low temperatures with an inoculated yeast strain in stainless steel tanks. 10% of the wine was fermented in old oak barrels with a mix of inoculated yeast and wild fermentation. All barrels were stirred weekly until blending. The wine in tank was racked off yeast lees straight after completion of fermentation to keep the
wine clean and in pristine condition. The resulting wines were blended to produce a clean, fruit driven rosé.
