Vintage Conditions

Vintage 2017 has been an ideal vintage. Rutherglen has experienced a long, mild and dry summer, and an early autumn. This is often referred to as an Indian summer. The vines have loved this and have been able to ripen the fruit in a slow and orderly fashion.

This slow ripening is extremely desirable as the fruit is able to ripen in a consistent fashion, which results in each variety being due for picking in an orderly fashion, instead of multiple varieties all being due for harvesting at the same time. In the winery this allows us to give maximum amounts of love and attention to each variety as it passes through, whilst also giving us time to experiment with any smaller batches to increase the overall quality of the wines.

By doing all of this we have seen the fruit and resultant wines showing and retaining their natural acidity whilst also having large amounts of fruit flavour and character. Vintage 2017 will be one of those years that we will talk about as being a “normal” vintage, and we will be enjoying these wines well into the future.

Tasting Notes

Rosé wines can be coloured any shade of pink, from a barely perceptible hue through to pale red. They are common in the warmer, southern regions of France, where there is a significant level of demand for a refreshing red wine to be enjoyed on a hot summer’s day. Rosé style wines are enjoying a surge in popularity in Australia, for similar lifestyle reasons.
Our dry style Rosé is made from Grenache with a touch of Shiraz grapes. Surprisingly robust, the palate is full of pretty fruit flavours reminiscent of strawberries and cream, with added spiciness from the Grenache. Serve chilled to fully enjoy the rich blend of sweet berry fruit, pepper and spice.

Winemaking

After soaking on skins at less than 10ºC, the ‘pink’ juice is
drained to capture the delicate, pretty, sweet fruit characters
before any of the tannins have been extracted. The juice is then
fermented using white winemaking techniques. Aromatic yeast
selection and a cool fermentation temperature has produced a
fruit driven wine which is representative of a style of Rosé from
the Rutherglen region.
