Invivo Marlborough Sophie's Rosé 2012

Sophie’s Rosé is named after Sophie Findlay of fashion house Zambesi who helped design Invivo's unique branding. Sophie's Rosé has a beautiful rose petal colour and aromas of crushed strawberries with a hint of tropical fruit and citrus. The palate is vibrant and full in the mouth with pronounced berry, citrus and sweetness only to balance acidity. This wine is a perfect summer drink and will accompany barbeque, salads and seafood extremely well.

Reviews

"Electric pink in colour, the palate is dominated with strawberry and subtle citrus notes. Finely balanced acidity makes this Rosé vibrantly refreshing, ensuring you will be back for a second glass soon...
M2 Woman Magazine, David Campbell
"Orange tinted Rosé. Soft, rich and plummy Rosé in a moderately sweet style. Quite full-flavoured with plum jam, quince and berry."

Winemaking

The fruit was hand harvested and transported to the winery’s cool store where the bins were chilled to 2-4oC. Once down to temperature the fruit was de-stemmed and lightly crushed into open fermenters. The must was kept cold and hand plunged twice daily for 72 hours and then pressed. The juice was then cold settled, racked and fermented using Sauvignon Blanc yeasts.

Harvest date: 2nd-15th April 2012
