About The Wine
Who better to make an Australian interpretation of Provence styled Rosé then a Frenchman who has worked in Provence?
The Portet family were one of the pioneers of this modern, dry, savoury style of Rosé and this is one of their best releases to date.
Made from Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot - this is a deceptively textural style of Rosé given that it never sees a wooden barrel. It's dry, crisp and ludicrously easy to drink.
This is consistently one of the great bargains of Australian Rose.
About Dominique Portet
Dominique Portet, quite simply, is international winemaking royalty. From a winemaking family that stretches back 10 generations in Bordeaux, his father Andre Portet was régisseur (vineyard and winery manager) of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac.
He is one of the original “Flying Winemakers”, having scoured the world in search of new and interesting exploits in wine which eventually lead him to the Yarra Valley.
Here Portet found “... wines with a fragrance and structure reminiscent of the wines of Bordeaux. The Yarra has a charm and a beauty that engulfs you, and its wines are worldly” and chose this as his home away from home.
