The Barossa Valley has the perfect climate and ideal grape varieties to produce Rosé. It is a wine style that should be enjoyed fresh and chilled.
Having been amongst the first to lead the great Rosé revival, it has been interesting to watch the popularity of this wine style grow.
Bucking the notion that Rosé is an afterthought, our 'Prince of Pink' has a special place in our hearts & is crafted with a clear purpose.
Sourced from specific sites achieving perfect yields promoting prominent primary fruit while retaining appealing palate cleansing crispness.
Enjoy with: Friends, under a tree on a hot, summer's day. Not summer? Just turn up the heat & serve with Asian or Spanish inspired spicy or seafood dishes. Best served chilled.
Rosé has been overlooked in the Australian industry, yet as a lively lunch wine to be enjoyed without pretension, it has no equal. Our decision to make a Rosé from our free run Grenache juice two years ago has certainly proved there are many Rosé devotees left in Australia. Now firmly established as a cult wine, the 1996 Rosé is as vibrant, fresh and fruit driven as its predecessors.
Rosé’s youthfulness is without question as it is bottled and available for enjoyment just weeks after picking, which is the way all good Rosés should be. This year we have booted the backbone of the wine by adding a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
The result is a wine with just a hint of tannin to round out the palate and a lovely crisp, acid finish making it ideal for those lazy, sun drenched autumn lunches of anti Pasto and crusty bread.
The 1995 vintage was included in Australia’s Top 100 wines last year and again in James Halliday’s Top 25 red wines under $15 – further proof that this is a “first class operetta wine”!
