The 2020 Limited Release rosé was made from handpicked Mourvedre and Grenache grapes grown in the heart of McLaren Vale.
The fruit was gently whole bunch pressed to delicately extract the spice driven, savoury juice synonymous with Mourvedre grown in the Vale. The very pale salmon hues are the result of the gentle extraction and minimal skin contact prior to fermentation.
A cool fermentation began in stainless steel tank with a small portion drained off half way through to a new French oak cask to accentuate the natural flavour and aromas of the wine. Once reaching dryness in stainless steel vat, the rest of the batch also spent 5 months in old French oak casks to impart subtle oak texture and build up palate complexity.
The final wine displays a complex layer of white peach, musk, almond meal and mild pimento brought into line by natural acidity, grape skin and fine oak tannin.
