Golden Mile Bench (100%)
A blend of Merlot (73%), Cabernet Franc (14%), and Malbec (13%), from Arise Bench.
Bled off the Hypothesis must after short skin contact (2-6 hours on average), Saignée is fermented and matured in small stainless steel tanks and casks. (100%).
Beautifully pale and wonderously bright, this salmon coloured rose shows vibrant strawberry, satsuma, mineral and herb aromas. Saignée's telltale creamy mouthfeel and integrated flavours follow, with red berry, ripe citrus and dried herb carried through the palate by a distinct mineral core, a pleasing acidity and a long, savoury finish indicative of Southern French styles.
Steamed mussels and clams with a tomato fennel broth, pomme frites, chopped parsley and lemon aioli.
