This gorgeous Rosé combines our traditional Grenache with our sun ripened Shiraz to produce a wine with deeper red berry characteristics and a Turkish Delight hue. This wine shows lifted aromatics of strawberry and floral spice producing a palate which is both vibrant and refreshing. A wine to enjoy paired with an antipasto platter, spicy Thai curry or Chinese barbecue pork.
This crisp Rosé celebrates our oldest vineyard on the estate. The Grenache vineyard was planted in 1946 in Bay of Biscay soil located in the lowest site on the property. Bay of Biscay soil is a heavy sticky, black clay that holds moisture well and renown for it's high level of shrinkage and expansion qualities. The Shiraz vineyard was planted in 1986 and is located on the Eastern boundary with a red loam soil and limestone bedrock.
The fruit was handpicked, sorted and retained on skins for 24 hours to ensure full flavour whilst developing a delightful watermelon hue. Limited stocks with only 100 cases produced of this special wine.
