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
Merlot, Shiraz & Riesling.
Fresh fruit salad nose
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.
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.
