Mountford Estate Rose North Canterbury 2020


Estimated delivery between July 18 and July 20.

Dry, lively and impressively flavoursome, this North Canterbury ros? is 100% Pinot Noir and is intentionally produced, using destemmed fruit which is pressed, with a little Pinot Noir added back for colour. A small amount of barrel aging prior to bottling adds weight and texture, accentuating the dry taste.

Mountford Estate was established in 1991 by Buffy and Michael Eaton who chose the site in Waipara for its elevation and active limestone soils. The wines are made by CP Lin, who has worked in the vineyard and winery since the early days when he became a close friend of the Eatons and a devotee of this great vineyard site and region. The winery is now owned by a Japanese investor.
