Very pretty salmon hue.
Aromas of Ripe apple and strawberry with a savoury complexity derived from natural fermentation in old oak.
A soft fruity palate with an elegant dry finish.
Our boutique vineyard and winery is a family enterprise intent on making concentrated, sophisticated and complex wines inspired by our unique Heathcote terroir, a fault line of ancient Cambrian red rock pulverised over 510 million years into soil.
We have utilised the vertical shoot positioning trellis system to open up the canopy, reduce the risk of disease and expose bunches to direct sun light for ripening. The vines are cane pruned to a single fruiting wire with a maximum 20 buds per vine. Crop levels are naturally low and hence bunch thinning is generally not required and irrigation kept to a minimum with some blocks unirrigated.
To conserve the natural balance within the soils and hence the overall health of the vines, we aim to minimise the use of chemicals. It is our practice to utilise organic principles in the first instance such as organic fertilisers and mulching to control weed growth and then if absolutely necessary, use small amounts of chemicals to target specific parts of the vineyard.
We utilise traditional winemaking practices that are labour intensive but within a modern understanding of its ways. Carefully selected parcels of Shiraz and Merlot grapes are picked very early in the season to ensure a well-balanced and fresh Rosé. The grapes are lightly whole bunch pressed into aged French oak barrels and naturally fermented. The resulting wine then spends another 4 months in barrel on lees to help soften the wine
