Awarded GOLD and 95 points in the 2020 Halliday Wine Companion Deliciously elusive fresh fruits including strawberry and raspberry are supported by white blossom of jasmine and citrus. This is a deliberate and considered Rosé, which starts from dedicated parts of the vineyard to ensure ripe flavours, fresh fruit and a trademark chalky fine finish. After hand-picking into 450kg bins, the fruit is placed overnight in a coolroom for the stalks to dry up,and the enzymatic reactions to slow down allowing a more gentle and pure extraction of juice at dawn the following day. Whole-bunch pressed grapes and yields less than 500 litres per tonne ensure delicate, pale and highly flavoured juice. Final blend was 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Shiraz. Fermented in stainless steel at moderate temperatures (up to 22 degrees) to enhance mouthfeel. No added acid or sugar, dry balanced and made with minimal intervention.

James Halliday's Wine Companion

A blend of whole-bunch pressed cabernet sauvignon and shiraz that has succulent mouthfeel and balance. It's one of those wines that won't take no for an answer, demanding the second sip, indeed mouthful, as you find more to enjoy each time you return.
