2016 Rose

$25.00

Fragrant, fruity, and food-friendly, with subtle phenolics and clean acidity providing interest, texture, and length.

Tasting Notes

An abundance of red berry fruit and subtle notes of rose petals. Bright flavours of raspberries and red cherries vie for attention on the palate, with their fruity acidity balanced by layers of texture and subtle savoury characters from phenolics, ageing on lees, and barrel fermentation.

Food

Charcuterie, robust styles of Asian cuisines, e.g. Isaan style curries, Tandoori chicken.

Vintage

A season that started with decent winter rains, but warm and dry thereafter, ensuring low yields of healthy, concentrated fruit.

Winemaking

An early pick from from our dry-grown Merlot back-block,. Chilled overnight, hand-sorted and whole bunch pressed to seasoned, 300L French oak for a long, slow barrel fermentation. Left on lees for the duration of ageing to build textural complexity.
