FITZ Rosé (2014)

FITZ Rosé (2014)

The 2014 vintage was very good to us with warm winds blowing up from the south to warm what was already a good growing season at Fitz. As a result, this is a nicely balanced wine with an interesting interplay of its flavours, acid and sugar. Our Reserve Sparkling wines are rested on lees longer than any other in our sparkling wine program at no less than 36 months. The result is real richness and complexity in the wine – a quality you can’t rush. The Fitz Reserve Rosé is made using traditional methods from 100% estate grown Pinot Noir grapes from Greata Ranch Vineyard.
