Overview

Named in honour of Sarah's daughter, who was born less than two months before the first release rosé went into bottle, Alta 'For Elsie' Rosé is a far cry from the usual sweet rosé's common in the Australian market.

Gone are the days where we can compare Australian rosé to lolly water or raspberry cordial, instead emerging from the pools of sugar are a new breed of highly sophisticated, complex , savoury dry style rosés. Six years ago, I committed to this style and have never looked back. I chose Pinot Noir grapes because of their natural flavour complexity earlier in the ripening process and low levels of harsh tannin.

Winery Profile

Sarah Fletcher came to Alta with an impressive winemaking background: a degree from Roseworthy, and thereafter seven years working for Orlando Wyndham. There she came face to face with grapes from all over Australia, and developed a particular regard for those coming from the Adelaide Hills. So she joined Alta, which had already established a reputation for its Sauvignon Blanc. The portfolio has been progressively extended with varieties suited to the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills. Exports to the UK, Canada and Hong Kong.
