Overview

Clearance Sale

Rosevears Vineyard is located in the heart of Tasmania's premier wine route, the Tamar Valley, a comfortable 15 minute drive from Launceston.

Tamar Ridge Winery purchased Rosevears Winery in 2006.

The 2008 vintage was warm, with generous yields of mid-weight, well balanced fruit.

Early morning picking straight to press followed by cold settling and racking. Fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain aromatics. Approx. 10% of the wine underwent maturation and malo-lactic on lees in older French oak barriques prior to blending back.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Bright, mid straw.

Aroma

Attractive ripe fruit aromas dominate with hints of yellow peach and musky, tropical fruits. There is a nice touch of oak adding complexity without detracting from the fruit and a little nuttiness derived from malolactic fermentation.

Palate

The palate is full and round with lots of ripe fruit flavours including peach, melon and passionfruit and just a little bit of spicy oak adding interest. Plenty of fruit weight and mid-palate intensity. The finish is crisp and refreshing with enough acidity to balance the weight of fruit.

Food Matching

It has the flavour weight to team well with a simple roast chicken or a whole baked fish.
