Waterford Rose-Mary 2023 is made in the traditional Provence Style of winemaking, ‘Blanc de Noir’. This is a winemaking style where red wine grapes (a blend of Shiraz, Mourvedre, Malbec, Cinsaut, Grenache, Merlot, Tempranillo and Sangiovese) are used in the production of this wine, the skin contact is intentionally kept very limited for only a three-hour period. Thereafter the winemaking follows a more traditional white wine journey. The skin contact occurs solely in the press where the grapes are left on the stems in a process called whole bunch pressing. Whole bunch pressing is a gentle process and is utilised to create a soft and delicate feel to the wine, it also minimises skin contact which gives the Blanc de Noir a very attractive colour.
The 2023 vintage shows aromas of delicate peach, fresh cherry, white floral, and citrus blossom. The fragrant nose flows to an inviting palate of fresh apricot, young nectarine and guava flavours, that finishes with a balanced acidity and a refreshingly low alcohol content. The wine presents a complex minerality and texture in the mid-palate that serves to lengthen the finish.
This is a perfect summertime wine, with an alcohol content of around 11%, which is very easily paired with many light, fresh dishes. This wine is named after Jeremy Ord’s late mother, a personality always light and refreshing.
Food pairing: Pairs well with pork, poultry, rich fish (salmon, tuna, etc.) and vegetarian dishes.
Alcohol: 11.5% ABV
