Farr Rising Saignee (Rose)

Sold Out!

Farr Rising Saignee is made by Nick Farr from Geelong pinot noir fruit.

A rosé by any other name would hardly taste as sweet...Farr Rising Saignée is a seriously good rosé with few peers; it's akin to drinking liquid rubies.

Saignee is a French winemaking term to describe 'bleeding' juice from just-picked grapes. This has two benefits - you can make a delicious rosé from the initial 'bleed' and it also concentrates the remaining grape juice, resulting, in Farr Rising's case, in a fuller flavoured pinot.

The Farr Rising winemaking team treats the making of their saignée rosé very seriously, giving it the full barrel ferment treatment to add layers of complexity and a smidge of savouriness. I say smidge because the overall impression when enjoying a glass of Farr Rising Saignée is of the most gloriously sweet fruit - acid subsumed, tannins subsumed, oak influence subsumed, but adding style, elegance and all the other nuances which make this a complete wine.

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
