WINE MAKING & VINTAGE
2017 was a fantastic year for winemaking in McLaren Vale. We had an extremely wet winter and our vineyards reached full saturation point. Spring brought very consistent fruit set and flowering. The rain continued throughout Summer and mild days with cool nights allowed for a slow ripening season. These conditions resulted in fragrant whites with lower acidity, and elegant reds with very attractive primary fruit flavours and lower alcohols.
Once the grapes had reached sugar and acid equilibrium we used a combination of hand picked, whole bunch pressed Grenache and selector harvested, skin contact, whole berry pressed Shiraz. Post-press we blended the juice together and allowed it to be settled and racked off the clear free-run. The wine was fermented between 12-16 degrees Celsius in stainless steel vats. Light filtration and early bottling helped to enhance this soft, fruit driven Rosé.
