About The Wine
For all of his specialties, Barney Flanders makes very fine Rosé.
This is made from mostly hand-picked Merricks vineyard Pinot Noir, with a splash of Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. It's hand sorted, whole bunched pressed, left on skins for about 24 hours before spending 6 months in neutral oak.
It's dry, delicate and beautifully perfumed, perfect for those seeking a classy, complex and savoury modern Rosé. Gorgeous Rosé.
Garagiste is the brainchild of Barnaby Flanders.
After leaving Allies 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.
