#10 2016 Francis Ford Coppola ‘Sofia’ Rosé: Sofia Rosé is a wine of unparalleled beauty. From its shapely, stylized bottle to its delicate fruity essence, this is a wine like no other. Born from a celebration of love, Sofia wines began as a gift from a father to his daughter. The charming and stylish Sofia Rosé is a tribute to the romantic, ebullient spirit of women everywhere.
Feminine and stylish, with a fragrant perfume of fresh strawberries and lavender, this rosé explodes with ripe, juicy flavours of cherry, raspberry and citrus zest. This refreshing wine is reminiscent of the popular dry rosés served in seaside café along the French Riviera. It’s crisp, delicate, and elegantly fruity with just a kiss of spice on the finish.
They typically harvest the grapes for our Sofia Rosé at a lower Brix to ensure we get a light wine that pairs elegantly with food. For colour extractions, the grapes are cold-soaked for 48 hours before the juice is separated from the skins.
