2021 Wayfarer Rosé
WF2

Tasting Notes

A medley of watermelon, white peach and orange zest aromas unfold in the glass, along with notes of kumquat and Asian pear. Tangerine and lemon come together for an intensely juicy entry, while a touch of richness satiates the palate.

About Wayfarer WF2

Launched in 2021, Wayfarer WF2 wines are 100% estate, limited production, high quality and value driven.  Inspired by the age-old question of what to open on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, WF2 wines are fresh, vibrant and richly textured.

Winemaking Notes

The Pinot Noir grapes were hand-picked in the cool of the night and hand-sorted at the winery. Fermented in neutral French oak barrels, the wine then aged for three months before bottling.

Vintage Notes

2021 brought another dry year and a vintage with great personality. We had our lowest rainfall on record, but thankfully the 21 inches of rain we received was enough to fill our pond (which is fed entirely by rainfall), and enabled us to give our vines a good start. A dry and mild spring gave way to a warm summer with three heat events, each lasting only a couple days. Even ripening led to 13 nights of harvest within 16 days. The fruit showed remarkable vibrancy, color and structure in 2021.
