Rose has gained in popularity over the last 5 years in Australia as people have come to realise how perfect it can be with our climate and cuisine . This wine has now become a crowd favourite in our cellar door.
We use the Saignée (pronounced sanyay) method of production, which is a French term, referring to the juice run-off (or bleed) from the soaking red grape skins. This wine was made from Shiraz grapes grown from our own vineyard in Orange. After the juice is run-off, it is then fermented and treated like a white wine using controlled cold fermentation temperatures. The wine has had no oak treatment and was bottled early to keep it fresh.
This is just a beautiful glass of wine, with a lovely colour of dark pinks and light reds. It has engaging aromas of red fruits, including strawberry and cream and it has an intensity that carries through to a long finish. A delicate wine, with heaps of flavor and cracking acidity and freshness.
Perfect for a warm summers afternoon.
