THe WINEMAKING

This Grenache Rosé was created with firm intention using the French Saignée technique, bleeding juice from Grenache early in production for a lighter wine. The result fills out the midpalate using ripe fruit flavours, while being bone dry. Balancing out less than 2g/L of natural fruit sugar with crisp acidity, here is a Rosé ready to be enjoyed in the sun as an aperitif, or with light meals.

The Vineyard

The maritime influence at our Langhorne Creek vineyard that is created by the afternoon sea breezes allows fruit flavours to evolve without excessive sugar production. The limestone based soils create wines of power and elegance with great varietal character. This vineyard is ideal for precision control over water use on the vines and known to provide more structural wines.

Taste profile

Primary flavors

Strawberry

A perfectly ripe plucked strawberry offers the quintessence of flavor. And what a flavor! Juicy. Tangy. Fresh. While perhaps not equal to the pleasure of summer foraging, finding notes of strawberry in wine yields delight in good measure.

Cherry

Fruit flavors in red wines typically fall into two different categories: red fruit and black fruit flavors. Cherry flavour falls into the red fruit categories but the cherry flavours span from red to black, and fresh to sweet. Confusing! Red Cherries can typically be found in young Grenache. Black Cherries are found in mature Pinot Noir.

Raspberry

One of the tartest red fruits, raspberry has a distinctive flavour and aroma that’s relished in desserts and confectionery. Given these characteristics, it’s more commonly detected as a primary aroma in ripe and fruit-forward red wines with medium to high acidity.

Secondary flavors

Rose Petal

Rose petal flavour is highly aromatic and may be described as similar to a basket of fruits, nasturtium or cloves.

Minerality

Minerality refers to a flavor profile and often a palpable sensation in the mouth. The flavors described generally have to do with rocks or fossils, such as stone, river rock, flint, gravel, slate, asphalt and oyster shell.
