Overview

The style of this wine is mid-way between tutti fruitti and super savoury. Vibrant, textural and refreshing. Sweet from fresh berry fruits (not sugar) – yet with a hint of earthy sophistication.

Expert Reviews

Made from Tempranillo and 12% Semillon. Ever the professional, I’m sitting at the same table as my kids who are currently working with Play-Doh. I love the smell of Play-Doh in the evening.

Rosado it is, and a nice one at that. Redcurrant, touch of spice and earth, maybe some roses. Medium weight with the flavour of strawberry, cranberry and drizzle of sweet lime. Fruit driven, rather than sweet, with even acidity and straight down the line texture. Finish is crisp and a little bit juicy. Good. Rating 91 - Drink by 2016, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au (DEC/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale to mid pink/salmon.

Aroma

Juicy, jubey fruits…cranberry juice? Squishy rose petal florals and some more earthy, flinty, savoury elements behind – perhaps even some exotic funghi?

Palate

More weight and texture than the colour suggests. More jubey sweet fruits upfront give way to soft, savoury characters in the mid palate, with a twist of citrussy acid on the finish.

Cellaring Potential

Can be cellared up to 2017.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible. The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family’s confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.

From the release of their very first wines, their efforts were quickly rewarded with critical acclaim, wine show success and most importantly, glowing feedback from wine lovers.
