The dry, medium bodied 2017 La Petite Mort Rosé is pressed from Pinot Noir grapes after a short period of skin contact, this process called saignée gives just a little colour and flavour from the skins which creates that delicate balance between red and white wine characteristics that a good rosé should display. Ours shows crisp fresh blanc pinot flavours and acidity with some earthy, savoury notes underlying subtle strawberry and red-berry fruits. (Bottled under CO2).
Unusual, confronting and a little left of the middle.
La Petite Mort (LPM) is the home of our 'other' wines. These small batch, experimental wines are produced with minimal wine making intervention and put into bottle without filtering or fining to allow the raw essence of our experimentation to shine through. Rustic and characterful, LPM wines promise a unique sensory experience and a story behind every label.
