Barney Flanders makes very fine Rosé. The 2016 is made from hand-picked Pinot Noir, hand sorted, whole bunched pressed and left on skins for about 24 hours. In this release he has managed to perfectly preserve all of Pinot’s natural delicacy and nuance. It's dry, delicate and beautifully perfumed. Gorgeous Rosé from Barney, surely one of his best to date.
What it Tastes Like
Rose petals and a little reduction adds complexity. Gentle flavours of strawberry and boiled lollies, cool mint, nice savoury drying tannins. It's slightly creamy but remains very fresh. Lovely wine.
95 points. "Well, look at this. A proper rose with flavour depth and super dry. A pale morello-cherry-salmon-pink, crisp yet there's texture, a hint of watermelon and rind, zesty lemony-mouthwatering acidity and rather spick." - Jane Faulkner (Australian Wine Companion)

About the Producer
Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders. After leaving Allied Wines in 2003 he embarked on a mission to produce small batch premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay under his own label in his beloved Mornington Peninsula. Barney loves the sub-regionality to be exploited in Mornington Peninsula, the slight alterations in aspect and soil profile within this small wine producing region provide him with the scaffolding around which he builds his stunning harem of small batch wines. They are only ever made in small quantities so time is of the essence if you want to explore the world of Garagiste.
The Mornington Peninsula has become a go-to destination for lovers of modern Australian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Mornington’s perfect climatic conditions for producing these varieties has seen it become, in only a relatively short time, one of the premier regions for these varieties in the country. The wines are beautiful. The best examples are wines which show a restrained power. Both intensity and elegance. It’s a region which will continue to blossom and mature for many years to come.
No variety captures the hearts and minds of the wine lover quite like Pinot Noir. It’s the unicorn of many a winemaker. Notoriously fickle to grow, this delicate red variety can deliver a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas, from the bright and floral to the moody and mysterious and everything in between. The cooler regions of Australia are where Pinot Noir is most at home. Look to Tasmania and Victoria for the best examples, with some quality wines beginning to show from the Great Southern and from the cooler parts of NSW. Falling in love with Pinot Noir can be a life long affair, beware the charms of this most enchanting of grapes.
