2022

Old-Vine Marananga Grenache & a small proportion of Old-Vine Pedro Ximinez, deliver a far more concentrated (and probably far less profitable!) rose than its pale colour might suggest. The nose is fresh and lifted with red liquorice, rose petal and rose water, together with the vaguest hints of more savoury, cured-meat and earthy complexity. The palate delivers accordingly, with good tension and dry, long finish. Most convincing 12% alc 91/100 Peter Nixon, The Wine Libertine

Description

After our usual supply of Grenache from the Marananga region of the Barossa was destroyed in a freak hail storm in late 2021, we needed to seek another solution to our Rosé. The opportunity was presented to source Mataro grapes from the Chalk Hill vineyards of McLaren Vale. This fruit is grown organically and sustainably, and allows us to keep producing the type of wine we love to make.

Elegantly lifted on the nose, showing sweet berry, apricot, oatmeal and subtle spice aromas. The palate delivers gentle weight and fine texture, well supported by bright acidity, finishing lingering and pleasingly dry. At its best now to 2025

    Night harvested. Whole berry pressed in the pneumatic bag press for over an hour, provided the colour suitable. Juice was chilled down to below zero, aiding the stabilisation process, and when racked, the ensuing juice was then allowed to naturally warm and begin fermentation with natural bentonite clay. This again aids stabilisation and assists in the prevention of “off ” characters in the fermentation. After a steady 16-day cool ferment, the wine was again chilled below zero to settle the solids and racked as a clean- finished wine.
