The Ngeringa Rosé is made from 100% Syrah grown on their biodynamic vineyard the Adelaide Hills. It is a Rosé built for those looking for more complexity in their pink wines.
Depth, structure, spice - the 2015 release has it all.
With every sip, this wine reveals a little more of itself. Campbell Mattinson summed it up perfectly in his superb 94 point review saying, “In a word: super.”
A dignified Rosé of class and finesse. Gorgeous warm weather drinking at its best.
What It Tastes Like
“Pale copper in colour. Plenty of spice, plenty of grip, plenty of reach through the finish. A ripper rosé. Cherries, cranberry and spice flavours/perfumes abound, and it crackles out through the finish in high style. In a word: super.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

About the Producer
Ngeringa is one of Australia’s pioneering biodynamic vineyards. The wines that winemaker Erinn Klein produces from their lovingly farmed site are pure and restrained renditions of cool climate wines. The farm is everything to the Kleins and it yields wonderful fruit alongside sustainably farmed produce. Theirs is one of the Adelaide Hills’ most important viticultural sites.
The Adelaide Hills may be the most energised wine region in the country. The sense of exploration and creativity amongst the tribe of talented young winemakers in this region is unparralelled. The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate region.
Long held up to the rest of the world as Australia’s flagship red variety, the mighty Australian Shiraz has undergone something of a renaissance over the past two decades. While our robust styles of Shiraz from powerhouse South Australian regions such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale may have put Australian wine on the map, Shiraz from our cooler regions are giving the variety a new look. Wines from Canberra, all parts of Victoria, the Adelaide Hills, and the Great Southern, are all delivering wines of finesse and spice set to a lighter framework. The tapestry of Australian Shiraz is richly diverse, and will only continue to develop and mature into the future.
