DOWNLOAD TASTING NOTES

Tasting Notes
COLOUR Crystalline pale salmon pink. NOSE A very refined, complex and light perfume of strawberry cream, musk and fresh rose petal, with a hint of blood orange and oregano. PALATE Arrives on the palate soft and round, with luscious plump fruit. Subtle natural acidity leads to a long, dry mineral finish.
Winemaker Notes
This Margaret River 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 organic 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
2021

A year of peculiar weather challenges due to the La Niña season, where our commitment to organic viticulture was vital to the successful growth of quality, balanced fruit. A cool and wet spring prompted the need for an intense leaf plucking program to mitigate disease risk. Canopy management was a priority throughout February and March to combat unusually warm and moist conditions. A rainfall event in early February provided a timely drink for the red varietals, followed by warm weather which was ideal for the Chardonnay to achieve ripeness. A second rainfall incident in early March was followed by sunny and breezy conditions to dry off the fruit for healthy ripening. With judicious canopy management and a crop of naturally resilient grapes, we are pleased to say that fantastic quality fruit was ripened and harvested with little-to-no disease in our vineyards.

    Beautifully fragrant and delightful drinking rosé.. Perfect drinking anytime but especially when the weather's a little warmer. V20

    Erin Larkin - Perth Now

    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. V20

    Very pale salmon-pink hue. The nose is slightly subdued with hints of wild strawberries. Soft red berry fruits fill the palate, there's a plushness that’s inviting but the finish lacks the drive and focus to balance it.
