Garagiste’s 2020 Le Stagiaire Rosé is made from directly pressed Merricks Pinot Noir., a portion of Pinot Gris (fermented on skins for three weeks) and a snippet of Tuerong Gewürz. The blend spent six months in neutral barrique, on lees, before bottling.
This is a delicious, textural rosé with a beautiful onion skin colour and a pretty, spicy palate. Loaded with red fruit, rosewater and aniseed notes, and a crunchy, refreshing close. Delicious.
