About The Wine
Dave Mackintosh reckons the vineyard that supplies the fruit for this wine is "not great for dry Pinot but makes bloody good Rosé."
It's hard to argue, this is delicious.
Made from Pinot Noir, it's light, fresh and fragrant, with barrel ferment and lees stirring building in texture and grip to add interest to beautifully pure fruit.
Another lovely Arfion wine and everything good modern Aussie Rosé should be.
New Zealand born Dave "Bro" Mackintosh is the head man at Arfion.
After cutting his teeth at Oyster Bay, Dave settled in Victoria's Yarra Valley and after working with Steve Flamsteed at Giant Steps, began his own brand Arfion: which means 'Our Wine' in Scottish Gaelic.
Dave is all about letting the fruit do the talking, guiding rather than forcing, constantly searching for the simplest way to get young, energetic wines into the bottle for people to enjoy.
His Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio are all effortless examples of wines made with a ‘less is more’ mentality. By working with some of the best growers in the Yarra Valley, Dave has put together a gorgeous range of wines that have interest and drinkability in spades.
