It’s excellent rose, right in the zone. Far out, such good drinking.

About The Wine

Pool parties, BBQs, sunshine and the sweltering heat of Summer - that's what was in mind when Pat Sullivan built this Rosé.

It's made from Pinot Noir from his sister's neighbour's vineyard between the Yarra and Macedon and boy does this cruise its way into the "Summertime-smashing" section of the fridge.

Unfined, unfettered Rosé in peak drinking form. As Mike Bennie wrote in his 93 pointreview, "It’s excellent rose, right in the zone. Far out, such good drinking."

About Patrick Sullivan

The wild-haired Patrick Sullivan is a farmer first, winemaker second.

His pride and joy is his vineyard in the Strezleki Ranges in the Gippsland G.I. of Victoria. On this plot of land, Pat farms with organic principals alongside Bill Downie, one of the most revolutionary winemakers of his generation.

Bill takes the Pinot Noir from the vineyard, Pat takes the Chardonnay and a few other bits and pieces. The wines are un-tinkered with, fermented in neutral vessels with little or no sulphur and are made to express their special site and the vagaries of vintage.

In Pat's words, "The wines are inspired by emotion, a moment in time and a sense of place."

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Scents of rose petal, watermelon juice, sweet spice, faint lavender. Light and crisp, barely there red berry fruitiness, very dry and shows a good dash of savouriness in saline acidity and just-so nuttiness. Sheesh, chalky tannins and amaro bitterness are working a mojo in this wine, and flavours stretch long and refreshing through the palate. It’s excellent rose, right in the zone. Far out, such good drinking."- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
