Rose keeps going from strength to strength, and it's great to see producers experimenting with so many different styles. Winemaker Mark Nikoloch delivers the goods in style with this dry, textural rose that packs in perfumed red berry and rose petal aromatics. The depth of flavour on the palate makes this a perfect wine to enjoy with light antipasto style dishes, or as a stand-alone refreshment.
A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Pinot Gris & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Awards and Accolades
2015 Vintage: 93 Points, Special Value Wine - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Dry style, executed beautifully. Rosewater, snapped twigs, earth and spice notes enliven the core of tangy redcurrant. It's savoury. It's lengthy. It's very good."
From the Winery
In contrast to the warm and compact growing season of 2016, Vintage 2017 saw a return to more traditional conditions.
A cool and wet spring delayed budburst and flowering and consequently we had a later start to harvest in early March. Some truly ideal weather followed with about three to four weeks of blue skies and temperatures in the high 20’s with no heat spikes. The even temperatures, cool nights and long ripening period provided us with some excellent fruit across all varieties.
