2021 Tangent by Alexia, Field Blend Rosé, Wairarapa
TANGENT: from the Latin ‘tangere’, meaning to touch.
Cabernet Franc, Gewürztraminer, Syrah, Viognier.
This Field Blend Rosé is a true cool climate wine – made of late ripening varieties picked together in ‘the field’ at the very end of the season and co-fermented wild to create a unique Wairarapa Rosé.
This is a wine that is the sum of its parts – full of plush dark fruit flavours, dynamic freshness and textural crunch.
Blackcurrant, floral, anise, lively.
A lo-fi wine – vineyard derived yeasts for wild fermentation, minimal handling, no fining, and no additions except sulphur. Vegan friendly.
