This Rose carries bright aromatics of green raspberries and white peaches, with a hint of rose petals. Pale salmon in colour. On the palate the Rose carries through being a little more restrained with some lovely texture and phenolics. Great length of flavour and intensity. A refreshing summer drink, to be drunk on all occasions!
Grenache, Malbec, Mataro, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat a Petit Grain
All sourced from a mixture of the heavier cropping blocks I pick for the other wines I produce all across the Barossa, the fruit is picked early for the Rose - separately for freshness. Most of the varieties are fermented separately and pressed straight away to a mixture of stainless steel and larger format oak. The exception is the “Farmer exploration block” of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and a few other vines of different varieties which are fermented together on skins for 5 days then pressed into old French puncheons and a 100 yr old oak Foudre (1600L).
Elevage until late September when it is racked off lees and allowed to relax in stainless steel tanks before a small amount of sulfur is added before bottling.
