Chimney Rock Elevage Rosé 2018
We are delighted to introduce the second vintage our newest creation – the 2018 Elevage Rosé.
At Chimney Rock back in the early nineties, we established the tradition of crafting single variety dry Rosés. In 2017 our winemaking team took on the challenge of crafting a blended rosé similar in philosophy, texture and beauty to our Elevage Blanc and Elevage Rouge. Could we create velvet in the glass in the form of a Rosé? The answer is a resounding, yes!
Only 310 cases of this rare wine were produced. It is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and the unctuous mouthfeel of this artfully blended wine is a reminder of why blends are so magical. Enjoy this ethereal delight in the beautiful light of spring!
Tasting Notes: This wine sings with fresh aromas of strawberry, cherries and white peach interlaced with a light hint of floral.
It is a medium bodied Rosé, with a supple round mouth feel that ends with bright acidity and a lovely lingering finish.
