2017 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Rosé

Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Serious Mornington Rosé from a seriously good winemaker in Barney Flanders.



About The Wine

Barney Flanders makes very fine Rosé.

The 2017 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, perfect for those seeking a classy, complex and savoury modern Rosé.

Gorgeous Rosé from Barney, surely one of his best to date.

About Garagiste

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Rose petals and a little reduction adds complexity. Gentle flavours of strawberry and watermelon, nice savoury drying tannins. It's slightly creamy but remains very fresh. Lovely wine. Classy Rosé. - Different Drop Wine Team
