About The Wine
Crisp, crunchy Rose made in a tight, dry style is all the rage in McLare Vale at the moment.
Winemakers like Alan Varney are taking cues from Provence and utelising the great Grenache resources of the region to produce a mor serious style of pink.
This is a top effort from the Halliday Best New Winery. It's light, fruity yet has yterrific acidty which makes it perfect for matching with seafood and warm spring days.
It's a classic no-brainer dry and savoury Rose that you could drink all afternoon long.
Varney Wines began with just a "tonne for fun" for Alan Varney to play around with over a decade ago.
He took his years of experience working at top South Australian wineries, including time spent at Orlando Wines, Longview Vineyard and over a decade as senior winemaker at d’Arenberg, and poured his skills into crafting a style of wine that he and his friends and family could enjoy.
The side gig became a full-time obsession, leading to Alan purchasing a dilapidated property at the Gateway of McLaren Vale to house a tasting room alongside his wife Kathrin’s restaurant, Victor’s Place. A sustainable modern winery was built. Their first commercial release was unveiled. The wines have been taking off ever since culminating with Varney being named James Halliday's Best New Winery in 2021.
