Disg. March 2024. Jack and Lois Doeven’s Drumborg site is again the source for the Rosé de Saignée. Ray Nadeson and Maree Collis have worked with this site for 20-odd years, placing great value on the vineyard’s high natural acidity at full ripeness. The composition here is Meunier at 42%, Pinot Gris at 39% and Pinot Noir at 19%. Nadeson destemmed the fruit to barrel for fermentation and used a rolling ferment, adding parcels as they came into the winery. The wine spent 12 months in large puncheons and underwent full malolactic conversion. After three years on lees in bottle, the wine was disgorged and topped up with wine from the 20-year-old perpetual reserve. As is Ray and Maree’s preference, there was no dosage.

It’s no secret that Ray Nadeson seeks power, structure and flavour in his wines, and this Rosé de Saignée is no different. Offering up aromas of crushed flowers and berries, spice and vibrant minerality, the structure is delicate yet potent, with a deep core of fruit, driving length and a tight, lasting finish. It’s a gastronomic tour de force; try it with tuna tartare or grilled salmon.
