Fellowship Exclusive

Bleeding off a portion of juice from each of Culmina’s best Bordeaux-red varietal lots, Saignée is a bright and characterful rosé from select Bordeaux varietal micro blocks on the Triggs’ family estate. Subtle herb and mineral aromas coalesce with nuanced, savoury red fruit to form a classically-styled rosé reminiscent of its bigger Hypothesis sister; one of outstanding vivacity, beauty, elegance, and style.

 

APPELLATION
Golden Mile Bench (100%)

VINEYARD SOURCE
A blend of Merlot (53%), Malbec (25%) Cabernet Franc (16%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (6%) from Arise Bench.

WINEMAKING
Made from 9 different micro-block lots and bled off of Culmina's Hypothesis and Single-Varietal red must fermenters following 2 to 6 hours of skin contact, Saignée is fermented and matured in small stainless steel tanks and casks.

TASTING NOTE
Delicate aromas of honeyed peach, red plum, and fresh rhubarb serve as a subtle contrast to earth and chalk notes. Bright red fruit and kumquat citrus flavours bring energy and elegance to the rich, mouth-filling palate.  The long, vibrant, and textural finish lingers with pleasing garrigue, showcasing Saignée's refined and elegant nature.

FOOD PAIRING

Hand carved Jamón Ibérico de Bellota with thickly sliced Farmersdotter bread; or grilled pork loin with toasted Marcona almond and Gladstone peach coulis; sheep's milk cheeses such as Ossau Iraty or Mancheho.
