The Details

Tasting Note A dry and savoury Rosé made from Barossa Grenache. The wine displays a pleasing light cherry blossom colour, fine pomegranate and lavender aromas and a dry mineral palate with a touch of saltiness and lingering finish. Distinctly different from the typical Australian Rosé.
Best Enjoyed With Enjoy with seafood, samosas, onion bhajis or guacamole and corn tortillas.
Treatment We selected old Grenache bush vines planted across the Barossa Valley on a variety of soil types. We pressed the wine directly into barrels for fermentation with wild yeasts from the vineyard. After fermentation, the wine was matured on lees for four months with weekly bâttonage to build texture and complexity.

Accolades

This is a very polished rosé
This is a very polished rosé that has such attractively fresh strawberry, cherry and some peach aromas. The palate has supple texture (all barrel-fermented) and the fleshy-peach and blood-orange flavors sit juicy and fresh. Dry finish. Drink now. Screw cap.

It's quite moreish
One of those Rosés you often see on wine lists, and if you do, grab a glass to kick back with or a bottle to splash into the glasses of those around you. Almost foolproof, this won't let you down and this 2021 is no different. Made from Grenache, red apples and soft creaminess are the heroes. A textural and bone dry wine that slides down all too easily, a little rhubarb tucks in behind red currants. The colour has been nailed as has the delish factor - it's quite moreish. Lunchtime, sundowner, baby shower, any timer - this is a great drink. Drink now.

It’s decent quality
Pale-coloured Rose, made with Grenache, from the Barossa. Close your eyes and you’d think that this was a white wine. Or almost. Citrus and candied orange flavours burst energetically through the palate, followed on by tart strawberry, raspberry jube and fresh green apple. It’s perfumed and lively; let’s call it refreshing. It’s decent quality.
Campbell Mattinson

Sublime
Grenache expresses its beautiful fragrances and palate nuances in different styles. In this case it’s rosé and it’s 100% Barossa grenache, which shows what a perfect fit it is for rosé. There are dry savoury characters with a lift of light strawberry and a certain saline minerality which really brings the palate to life. It’s perfect current drinking.
