The fruit for this wine was sourced from a cool climate vineyard allowing us to produce a wine of vibrant colour with lifted berry fruits and spice on the nose.
In Spanish terms this wine has been produced in the ‘joven’ or youthful style – meaning it exhibits only the vibrant fruit characters of Tempranillo without the encumbrances of sweet or toasty oak.
A fresh lively nose with strawberry fruits from the Pinot Noir and zesty lemons from the Chardonnay.

Unashamedly this wine has a spicy herbal nose that is entirely attributed to the technique of partial whole bunch fermentation. Time in the glass allows layers of vibrant fruit to emerge until eventually the marriage of these two characters becomes seamless. It is the palate, however, that truly justifies the ferment technique with amazingly fine and textured tannins providing length and breadth to the wine well beyond those availed by conventional winemaking methods. Although drinking beautifully now, this wine will reward substantial cellaring, perhaps even for 24years and beyond.
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.
