Overview

Cherry, strawberry and raspberry notes with an underlying minerality. A succulent rose, with a refreshing mouthful of fruity flavours tasting like a bowl of freshly made summer pudding with a juicy lip smacking finish like a mouth cleansing sorbet.

Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Varietals

Merlot, Shiraz & Riesling.

Aroma

Fresh fruit salad nose

Palate

Merlot and Shiraz provide the palate texture and cherry, raspberry, spice notes while Riesling provided the citrus and the low pH for a vibrant colour. Riesling also provided the clean lines and restrained structure of the wine.

Winemaking Notes

We used three different but complimentary grape varieties roughly of equal proportions to produce the style of rose we were chasing. Free run after a light skin contact of the Merlot and Shiraz was cold settled and fermented cold to retain the fresh fruit flavours. Riesling was blended in towards the end of ferment which was stopped to retain a dash of sweetness. The wine received a light fining before filtering and bottling in late June.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Plantagenet takes its name not only from its home, but also from its heritage. In 1968 in a stroke of serendipity English migrant Tony Smith, himself a descendent of the Plantagenet's, invested his small inheritance in a farm called Bouverie in Western Australia’s Plantagenet Shire.

He first planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon followed by Riesling three years later.

The first wines from these young vines were tight and lean and showed the elegant spice and fruit characters for which this area was to become known.
