Description

Tasting Notes
Aroma
Brilliant pale salmon in colour. Lifted bright fresh fruit notes, summer berries, aromatic rose blossom and delicate hints of blood orange.
Palate
The palate demonstrates all of the hallmarks of what one of McLaren Vales champion varieties can do as a Rose. Strawberries and cream, Turkish delight and bright red berries balance with a bone dry, crisp, moreish acidity and a textural citrus pith finish. We challenge you to stop at only one glass!

 

Vineyards
Grenache was selected from two vineyard sites, the first in Whites Valley, near the township of Willunga in Southern McLaren Vale. The geology of this vineyard is ‘Christies Beach Formation’ which consists of alluvial fan clay, sand and gravel that has been washed down from the hills bordering McLaren Vale over millions of years of uplift and erosion. The second is in Blewitt Springs on a higher altitude ridgeline of deep sand. 80 year old, dry grown vines.

 

Winemaking
Destemmed, Crushed and chilled to the press. Held on skins for 6 hours to ensure minimal colour extraction, desired phenolic contact and structure. Fermented cold to retain brightness and delicate aromatics. Left on yeast lees post ferment for three months to build texture.
