About

About The Wine

Nav Singh takes his Rosé pretty seriously, the newest version is made solely from Pinot Noir and might be his tastiest to date.

This is Derwent Valley fruit picked "on a fruit day before the harvest moon." Nav believes that picking on fruit days according to the biodynamic lunar calendar makes for more expressive fruit. It's hard to argue when you try this wine.

It was left on lees for six months to build texture and palate weight. This is a very serious wine. It's long and elegant, both crisply defined and voluptuous - quite simply, it's a next level Rosé that must be tried if you want to see just how good this wine style can be.

Only 50 dozen made.

About Domaine Simha

Nav Singh is the man behind the Domaine Simha label. Along with his wife Louise, Nav has built a unique stable of Tasmanian wines under the Domaine Simha banner. 

He draws from multiple philosophies when crafting his range. The winemaking is mostly traditional, using low amounts of additives, fermenting in clay amphora, experimenting with varying levels of whole bunch and skin contact. The fruit he sources from the Upper Derwent, Coal River and Huon Valley regions, is all picked according to the lunar calendar ala biodynamics.

At Domaine Simha, new project is always in the works. Nav is never afraid to take a chance or try something new.

Critic Reviews

Bright fairy floss notes and turkish spice, sweet strawberry and orange wrapped around a long, mineral driven palate. There's a savoury element too, a lick of salt and pink peppercorn and a finish which is opulent yet soft and gently powdery. So good. - Different Drop Wine Team
