WINEMAKER NOTES

Pale salmon colour with rose hues. Fresh aromas red berry, cranberry, red currant are complimented by savoury mineral characters of flinty and struck match. Red berry fruit flavours carry onto the palate and combine with dry, savoury, soft chalky texture.

VINEYARD

Shiraz, grenache, nero d'avola and mourvèdre from our Tellurian vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield. 

VINTAGE

On the back of two previous dry seasons 2020 was very challenging. A very dry winter and spring was followed by a dry and hot summer. Yields were down by over 50% in some varieties. The grapes that were harvested were of good quality and produced a Rosé with bright vibrant fruit, good texture and fresh acidity.

WINEMAKING

Grapes hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed, then the juice was pressed to tank.  Fermented in seasoned French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The wine remained on yeast lees in barrel and tank for three months prior to racking, stabilisation and bottling. The final blend comprises 44% Shiraz, 28% Nero d’Avola, 17% Mourvèdre and 11% Grenache.
