Mitchell Harris Pyrenees Rosé 2021
$ 30.00 incl. GST
Pinot Meunier and Sangiovese are two distinct and exceptional rosé wines, each with its own unique flavour profile. The delicate and fruity notes of Pinot Meunier are complemented by the more robust and savoury taste of Sangiovese Rose. Fermented separately using wild yeast in 6-10 year old French oak barriques and hogsheads, and matured on lees for 5 months prior to bottling, this sublime blend of Pinot Meunier and Sangiovese Rose creates an exceptional and truly unique rosé wine.
Mitchell Harris / Pyrenees And Ballarat, Vic
Cool Climate Stylings From One Of The Most Passionate Advocates For Victorian Wine
Famed for an excellent wine bar and cellar door venue in Ballarat, Mitchell Harris is a multi-faced wine business of two families. The affable John Harris earned his winemaking stripes as chief sparkling winemaker of Domaine Chandon before the families launched their own operation in 2008, becoming Ballarat’s first true food and wine destination, underpinned by a smart, small batch wine label.
Long standing relationships with good growers have been maintained, most notably with the Peerick vineyard in the gorgeous Victorian Pyrenees. Winemaking ethos is of contemporary minimal handling, with a leaning to wild ferments, considered use of French oak, and gentle extraction. The wines are stylistically clean and pure, with John Harris a renowned tireless campaigner in the promotion of Victoria’s wines and regions.
