- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
This is a lovely little Rosé with plenty of interest factor. The fruit is fermented long and slow inside old, neutral oak barrels for anywhere up to 100 days. This slow, natural ferment slowly builds texture while maintaining brilliant vitality and ultimately great drinkability. The savoury elements of the Sangiovese grape add layers of spice to the bright a shiny fruit in the 2016 making it the most smashable version of this wine to date.
What it Tastes Like
Crisp and crunchy with raspberry and fresh cherry characters. Lip-smacking acid keeps the spiced berried show on track. Soft touches of tannin only up the sheer drinkability and food friendliness of the whole package. Great Rosé. Simply delightful.
all being farmed off to 100% old French oak for fermentation with a lot of lees work for texture. Natural ferments on the Rosé are commonly seeing super long fermentation periods of around 100 days and the wine has struck a chord of balance between a textured mid palate, yet supported by linear acidity.
