Overview

The La Zona Rosato is a blend from across the Mediterranean of two classic varieties – the definitive Italian Sangiovese and noble Spanish Tempranillo grapes, which were grown on the Whitfield vineyard estate in Upper King Valley. The juicy strawberry notes of Tempranillo and the savoury cherry notes of Sangiovese make for a light, fresh burst of fruit with some lovely textural elements on the finish to round out this distinctive Rosé style wine.

Expert Reviews

Made with sangiovese and tempranillo. Dry and savoury with juicy flavour and drying tannin. Everything you would expect of a rose made with these varieties; it's not merely the power of suggestion. Plays to food more than it does to the crowd. CM - Australian Wine Companion, Rating 92, 27th July 2015

The Chrismont story starts in Italy in the 1920s where Arnie's father Arnold (right) grew up in the small town of Noarna in the Trentino region near the Austrian border. One of ten children, Arnold grew up on a farm that had grape vines and a small orchard. His father was a share farmer and they lived as caretakers in the majestic Castel Noarna, rebuilt in the 11th century from its own ruins after a probable previous life as a fortification during the Roman era. The castle sat amid the steep Trentino terrain, dominating Noarna and the surrounding area of Vallagarina.

Arnold set sail for Australia in 1952 and settled in the North East Victoria town of Myrtleford, helping a migrant Italian family on their tobacco farm. It didn’t take long before a number of Arnold's brothers settled in Australia, too. The four decided to join forces to start a tobacco growing business with Arnold in charge. From a small share-farming plantation, Arnold grew it into the largest tobacco growing enterprise in the Southern Hemisphere within eight years; the height of the business came in the mid-1960s. When the Australian Government introduced a quota system to the tobacco industry severely constraining tobacco production, the brothers were rendered bankrupt overnight.

Following discussions with John and Peter Brown in 1979, Arnold and Arnie received a ten-year contract to supply grapes to Brown Brothers of Milawa, thus embarking on a journey full of the trademark Chrismont passion and drive.
