Overview

The Bush Vine Grenache Rosé displays vibrant cherry and raspberry characters with a delicate fruity palate and a brilliant light violet pink colour.

The 2014 started out with an extremely wet winter in 2013 with significantly higher than average rainfall which then essentially ceased for the months following. An unexpected burst of heat through spring lead to flowering early for many varieties. Low rainfall and extremely high temperatures continued throughout summer. Immediately following the high temperatures was some cool weather and a large rain event which slowed down ripening, causing quite a gap in vintage. Top wines will be exciting, well balanced acidity and full flavoured with good tannins.
