2018 Large Format Release McLaren Vale Rose – 1.5 litre
Mourvedre (95%) and a small amount of Grenache grapes (5%) were handpicked and in old McLaren Vale. The fruit was crushed and immediately pressed to extract the optimum level of flavour and tannin to best suit the style. The wine displays a pale onion skin tone derived from a minimal period of juice on skins prior to pressing.
Following a cool fermentation in stainless steel vat, the finished wine shows a balanced mix of grapefruit zest and strawberry compote flavours together with musk and Asian spice aromatics. Due to the early picking of fruit, the wine maintains a focused natural acid profile and a fine line of tannin to carry the flavours through the mouth.
The textural and flavour components of the wine ensure that it can be enjoyed with a range of foods from tapas and spicy dishes through to fruit based desserts and tangy sweets.
