The Day for Night is a ripe rosé with bright rosehip, peach and savoury notes. The fermentation and aging in foudres has provided a textural mouthfeel and complexity while the Nero d’Avola component lingers with zippy acidity.
Parcels of Syrah and Nero d’Avola grapes were harvested in late March on the same day, with the Nero a little way behind the Syrah in its ripeness. The grapes were direct-pressed and settled overnight with the juice transferred into two 1800L foudres for fermentation. The wine was racked off gross lees and returned to the foudres for six months with some stirring of fine lees.
