2017 Grenache Rosé

NEW RELEASE
$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.
