Variety: Grenache Sangiovese Region: Barossa Valley Alc/Vol: 12.5% Winemaker: John Harris
Colour: Salmon pink.
Bouquet: Beautiful and delicate notes of lifted strawberry, summer fruits, rose petal and cherries.
Palate: Vibrant and refreshing dry textured style with a core of fresh juicy raspberry and strawberry. Delicate rose petal provides a really pretty highlight whilst cherry works its way through to give a touch of savoury spice. The wine culminates with a lingering finish derived from natural fruit acid and fine tannin.
Winemaking: The grapes for this wine came from two vineyard sites on opposite sides of the Barossa Valley. One in the warmer Western Ridge of the Barossa, the other from the cooler Eden Valley region ensuring differing characters which when co-fermented would combine to create something truly unique. Once picked, the grapes are crushed and left in contact with their skins until we obtained what we felt was the perfect Provence like colour. The juice is then run off the skins into a stainless steel tank to undergo wild fermentation. The wine was fined and filtered then bottled soon after to capture and retain the natural fresh fruit flavour of the grape.
Cellaring: Drink now while fresh and vibrant or over the next 2-3 years. Best served chilled or over ice for something extra refreshing!
