Harvest Date

2-14 March 2018

Vineyards

Shadowfax, Werribee

Viticulture

Good rains in early spring set up the season in our dry grown Werribee Minnow vineyard. December through to harvest had moderate temperatures, with little rain, ideal ripening conditions. The Pinot Noir and Cinsault had lovely peach aromatics at harvest, with the Mouvedre and Syrah giving lovely texture and depth. The Grenache also an extra spice element to the wine.

Wine Making

Hand harvested fruit was immediately gently whole bunch pressed to give minimal colour and tannin extraction. Wild fermentation occurred in older French barrels. The wine rested on lees to relax and unwind for five months prior to assemblage and bottling in August 2018.

Pale penny copper with hints of salmon

Bouquet

Palate

A generous mouth filling palate shows rich peaches and cream that flows on and on. The high pH gives the wine lovely mouth-coating texture and warmth. The palate is long and
flowing with oodles of flavour. The fine lacey tannins frame the wine and the fine acidity keeps the palate fresh and crunchy. This 2018 Rose is a dangerously drinkable wine best enjoyed chilled with friends on a warm day.
