Named after the small merchant ships that for centuries have plied their trade along the Mediterranean coast, we present Pinque, a Provencal style Rose produced from the steep sun drenched coastal hillsides surrounding Cactus Bay. The exceptional 2014 vintage brings us our inaugural release ofPinque, our classically styled, pale, dry Rose! Pinque is a blend of 66% Merlot and 33% Malbec from some of our steepest vineyards surrounding the idyllic Cactus Bay. The grapes were handpicked and loaded into the press for a ‘champagne’ press program which is a gentle and extended pressing program lasting six hours which is designed to extract only the most pure and delicate flavours from the grape. After 48 hours of cold settling the pale coloured juice is racked to tank for a long cool fermentation to dryness before careful filtration and bottling in the winter months.
