2016 Grenache Rosé

SOLD OUT
$22.00 inc GST

Our longstanding passion for Grenache and its favourable growing conditions in the maritime climate of McLaren Vale, inspired our ambition to produce a vibrant dry rosé perfectly suited to accompany lighter cuisine and enormously refreshing during the warmer months of the year.

 

The Grenache fruit for this new release was hand-picked and given a short period of skin contact before crushing, de-stemming and lightly pressed using our 1928 basket press. The juice was then fermented at cool temperatures to maximise freshness and retain delicate flavours.

 

Our rosé exhibits vibrant berry fruit, a touch of spice, along with texture and is supported by crunchy acidity leading to a thirst-quenching dry finish.

The best Aussie Rose I have ever had!
Congratulations on the release of the 2016 Rose. It is without doubt the best Aussie Rose I have ever drunk. It reminds me of the Bandol or Roussillon roses which are bone dry and are “just pink”.  I am no MW – just a punter – but I know a “good drop”.  Such a versatile wine – it will match salads, white meat dishes and seafood.

I will keep my eyes open for the results from the McLaren Vale Bushing Festival!

There is only one problem  - I am tempted to drink it like cordial on a hot day and so do other people as well – like lunch guests.
