This wine walks the middle ground between being fruit driven and more complex and structured.
The cool clean fermentation has helped preserve the wine’s wonderfully fresh aromatics.
A very fortunate mistake! That's how I now describe the confusion that led to many Australian vignerons (including ourselves) inadvertently planting Savagnin in the belief we were planting the Spanish (Galican) variety of Albarino. Years of subsequent perspiration, education and frustration have resulted in the release of our third Sous Voile Savagnin. A Cri de Coeur (Cry of the Heart) if ever there was one! Rollo Crittenden
Savoury aromatics of musk and spice with textural flavours of pears and lemon juice.
The 2018 vintage experienced favourable mild to warm weather which allowed fruit to achieve optimal flavour ripeness.
This wine was whole bunch pressed with a wild yeast ferment and spent 11 months in French oak barriques (50% new). It was filtered and bottled Feb 2018 (16 months bottle age prior to release).
Subtle florals and citrus lead to white stone fruit. Pure fruited and finessed with acid steering the palate. A beautiful, elegant wine.
Fresh, mineral and lively with hints of bitter orange and red berries balanced nicely by creaminess and spice,

Rose is one of the most versatile and enjoyable styles around, offering as it does a great compliment to Asian dishes or just a refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day.
