Tasting Notes
COLOUR Crystalline pale salmon pink. NOSE An elegant, fragrant perfume with fresh rose petal, delicate strawberry fruit and raspberry friand. PALATE A light, soft and creamy core with low acidity, leads to a juicy dry finish featuring delicate ripe strawberry and fresh rose petal flavours. Balanced and remarkably fresh, this wine imparts a comfortable, clean and delicious mouthfeel.
Winemaker Notes
The Shiraz was picked earlier, at lower Baumé, to help retain acidity and deliver freshness and fruit purity. The juice was oxidatively handled, then fermented under cool conditions using specially selected yeast to produce a wine with a textural and savoury complexity. This wine was made without the use of oak to preserve the primary fruit expression.

Vintage Notes
2020

2020 was a stunning vintage featuring low yields with fantastic quality; characteristics that will define this vintage as 'rare and fine'. Spring development was early followed by a warm start to summer and continuing into fine sunny, dry conditions throughout the summer months. This combined with lower yields, brought an early start to harvest. Conditions were ideal early on with minimal bird pressure due to timely arrival of Marri Blossom and no disease pressure. Bird pressure increased following a rainfall event late February, resulting in the reds being netted. Conditions also cooled slightly, extending the red vintage, delivering ideal tannin ripening and fruit flavour preservation.

    Ray Jordan's Top 100 Whites

    Beautifully fragrant and delightful drinking rosé made from 100 per cent shiraz matured in stainless steel. It's so bright with red fruits on the nose and a subtle spicy character. Perfect drinking anytime but especially when the weather's a little warmer.

    Shiraz rosé has a juiciness to it that I find totally irresistible when executed well – as this has been. This is a vibrant and gorgeous iteration of rosé, and like the Deep Woods Harmony rosé, wildly affordable at under $20. Shiraz has a way of making spicy, berry laden deliciousness in rosé, with a phenolic structure that gives it a bit of chew and bounce as well. Epic.
