Pinot Noir grapes are black-skinned and typically very difficult to cultivate. This grape variety is very well known internationally and is grown in most winemaking regions throughout the world. Its origins trace back to the Burgundy region in France. Canada has had great success with Pinot, producing renowned wines in Prince Edward County, among other regions.
Nestled on a peninsula on the north shore of Lake Ontario, a short drive from Kingston, the Prince Edward County wine region sits on a bed of porous limestone. This is crucial for creating the mineral, brightly acidic wines the region is known for. The vineyards benefit from breezes off of Lake Ontario, keeping the temperature down on hot summer days and cool at night. “The County” was first settled in the late 18th Century and, after years of farmland agriculture, began growing grapes in earnest by the early 2000s.
The first Rosehall Run rosé made from entirely Estate Grown Pinot Noir from the South Block planted ca 2003/2004
Harvested just under four tonnes for this exclusive Small Lots cuvée. Mostly clone 667, the most aromatic and perfumed Rosehall Run grows. Skin contact for 18 hours gave the wine the palest salmon colour and a new press gently coaxed a super clean and pure juice, never going above one bar of pressure.
