Overview

Alluringly fragrant with sweet nashi pear, white stone fruit and mandarin fruit flavours, bundled up in bright natural acidity. Hints of honeydew melon dance around the edges. It’s rich, viscous and elegant, a testament to the winemaking prowess of Don Lewis and Narelle King. Enjoy it alongside snapper in burnt butter sauce.

Expert Reviews

Textural, fresh, top value and versatile with food – why not swap your go-to for an Italian white? Italian varieties are thriving on local soils, and for those willing to try something new, the resulting wines are diverse, refreshing and affordable. Nashi pear and white stone fruit on the nose, with an underlying hint of citrus. Rich, viscous and elegant, the flavours of mandarin and pear are balanced by a bright acidity that sees this wine linger on the palate. Halliday Wine Companion, 22 February, 2019

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The extensive experience and winemaking knowledge of Don Lewis combined with Narelle King's broad thinking and diverse skill set, brought partnership strength to Tar & Roses. For the past three years, Don and Narelle have been making wine in Priorat, Spain, fuelling their intrigue in the classic European varietals, particularly Nebbiolo.

Their interests were not confined to the varietals or wine styles solely in traditional European regions, but how these varieties could be grown and made in Australia.

Back in Australia, Don and Narelle have concentrated on producing wines from these European varietals in their own region - Central Victoria. Here, they make Tempranillo, Nebbiolo, Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese in addition to a Central Victorian Shiraz, one of Don's signature varieties.

Tar & Roses encapsulates the complexity and interest of this story. One that shows the friendship between Don and Narelle, and the multi-regions of Italy, Spain and Australia. It is a brand that speaks of the traditions of wine merging with the cutting edge of Australian winemaking, bridging the old world with the new.
