About The Wine
Tantalising release of Rosé this year from the guys at Tonic Wines. Mataro and Grenache have handpicked from two separate vineyards in the Clare Valley.
The wine spent 5 months in old barrels before being sent to this very stylish bottle and sealed with a cork. It's savoury and structured and thirst crushing. A dead serious Rosé tracking more toward Bandol than Provance in style.
It's a modern Australian Rosé for grown-ups.
About Tonic Wines
Tonic Wines has only been around for a couple of years but the wines have caused quite a stir.
Small batch, handmade, minimalist South Australian wines with an aim to source high-quality parcels of fruit, picked early to capture freshness and vitality. Tonic declares "We don’t really believe in boring wine", and with the remarkable Chardonnay, Grenache, Mataro and Nebbiolo released thus far, there are no signs of boring here.
These wines are produced in painfully small amounts, sometimes as little as 50 dozen per wine. If you are curious about this winery with mystique, you'll have to act quickly to try their delicious wares.
