SILVER MEDAL – The Perth Royal Wine Show, September 2020
A rosé that stands out from the crowd of pink plonk – made from a base of free run Shiraz and Viognier juice. This base provides the backbone of the wine and delivers the fruit sweetness, vibrancy, and structure. The depth and texture comes from a blend of barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc pressings and barrel fermented Chenin Blanc. It is this addition that truly adds a layer of complexity and tightens the wine with a distinctive savoury element, heightened aromatics, and that little bit of mouthfeel that can sometimes be missed with rosé.
On the nose there is a very pretty floral character coupled with ripe stone fruits and hints of spice. The palette maintains a more savoury, structure driven appearance with bright crunchy acidity that is softened by the lushness of the fruit. The intricacies of multiple varieties come together to create a summer drink that is as complex as it is delicious. We believe the 2020 Margaret River Rosé captures that uniquely summer feeling of being free and having fun.
