Appearance, Pale salmon in colour.
Bouquet, Lifted bouquet of fresh fruits, strawberry, raspberry and cherry.
Palate, Bright fruit-driven palate of strawberry and under-ripe plum notes, balanced by a savoury backbone, and firm acidity freshening the finish.
Fermentation, Hand harvested fruit was whole bunch pressed into stainless steel tank, with minimal skin contact. Then fermented at 13 degrees C for 14 days, with lees contact post ferment for 3 months, then fined, filtered and bottled in August 2019, retaining fresh fruit driven characters and firm acidity.
Conclusion, Best consumed young while expressing the fresh fruit driven characters of the variety.
RATINGS & REVIEWS
2021 Halliday Wine Companion, 92 points - A melody of cab, shiraz, merlot and franc making for an intensely flavoured rose. In an age when so many seem to be striving for pallid expressions bound by a herbal twine, this has flavour. Lots of it: red currant, musk, tangerine and orange rind. The acidity is saline and fresh, towing it all long. (Ned Goodwin)
