The Mora 2023 Pinot Rosé is a lighter, dry, more sophisticated style of rosé. Its pale colour, delicate fruit, crisp acidity and light touches of minerality speak to our premium blocks at Felton Terraces from which this wine is sourced. It proves that Rosé can indeed be a serious wine.
100% Pinot Noir. Picked in the cool of morning to retain the delicate fruit characters. Whole bunch pressed to tank and settled for 48 hours. Cool fermentation in stainless steel. No skin contact.
Aromas of sweet pea, ambrosia apple and a fresh spring garden. Tight line of acidity balanced perfectly with generous fruit and great concentration. A beautiful gastronomical wine that exudes elegance, finesse and purity.

Overall, a warm and settled growing season, with little to no high winds, no major frost events and very good soil moisture leading into late 2021. Weekly rain events throughout November took the vines into premium conditions for canopy growth. Flowering conditions were perfect, with warm dry weather over this crucial period. In turn, the fruit was very even in ripeness within the bunches. Autumn was settled and warm, and harvest was very busy and fast-paced. A stellar vintage with very high-quality fruit and fantastic crop loads, which were easily ripened by our lush, large canopies.
