The wine is fresh on the nose with aromas of mandarin, cherry, rose-water and spice. The palate is dry, with moreish mid-palate texture and mouth-watering acidity. Great for seasonal drinking with antipasti!
Sangiovese and Mammolo grapes were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning in late February, and early April, respectively. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed, yielding just the barest pink colour in the juice. A moderately cool fermentation was undertaken before preparation for bottling.
There’s a subtle array of pomegranate and rose petals, with savoury red fruit aromas of strawberry and macerated cherry with hints of wildflowers and spice. The palate is lifted with roses, strawberry and glace cherry that frame this structural, floral and dry balanced rosé.
Sourced from vineyards in Mudgee and Orange, this wine truly has the best of both worlds. With Sangiovese, Zinfandel and Barbera being from Mudgee, at an elevation of 520 meters above sea level. These grapes are quite rich and round due to the warmer climate of Mudgee, where the mean January temperature is 23.5°C and average rainfall is 600mm per annum. By contrast, Orange’s cooler climate, and higher elevation of 880 metres, produces more elegant and refined qualities in the Shiraz grapes. Generally one of NSW’s cooler regions, Orange has mean January temperature of 19.15°C with a variance between summer and winter months, and an average rainfall of approx imately 875mm per annum. The soil for both sites is predominately clay loam, which is deep and well drained. With underlying shattered rock and quartz being found in Mudgee, while Orange has the added bonus of red and brown ferrosol soils derived from basalt. These varying conditions add such complexity and depth to the flavour and quality of the grapes. The grapes were harvested earlier than normal to attain bright fresh varietal characteristics. They were then, destemmed and must chilled. This must was drained and soft pressed only after which the settled juice was racked then warmed and inoculated.All varieties were separately fermented in stainless and blended prior to final maturation. As a final blend the batches were racked off gross lees, while still maintaining light lees contact for 6 weeks, and cooled to 10-12°C to allow the midpalate to build texture and depth.The wine was then left to settle before being clarified and bottled in August 2018.

This all frames the opulent ripe sweet fruits of Malbec.
