Winery Tasting Notes

TA S T I N G N O T E

Santa D’Sas Rosato has been made to reflect the Sangiovese varietal expression of this wine style. A vibrant nose offers up strawberries, rose petal with a hint of spicy cinnamon. Intense flavours of sweet cherry and raspberries are intertwined with a candied peel and finishes with a hint of pink peppercorn. The palate extends to a dry, textural yet balanced finish.

F O O D

Match of the vintage: Burrata with watermelon, pickled fennel and Prosciutto Crudo. Also try Ham, Leek and Gouda Souffles or simply enjoy on it’s own. Salute!

M U S I C M AT C H

‘Raise Your Glass’, Pink. But of course, it makes sense!

R E G I O N S

The King Valley is one of Australia’s most exciting and emerging wine regions. Home to the most picturesque and unspoilt valley in Australia, King Valley benefits from a cool climate with extremely varied terrain, that ranges from snow-capped Alps to sun baked fields.

T H E S E A S O N

The 2016 growing season was basically a dry, warm vintage. Yields were moderate with strong agreement on the vibrant aromas and intense flavours in white varieties. Time will define the standouts of the vintage, but the early indication is that the Rosato has great intensity of aromas and flavours complemented by a crunchy acid core.
