The Sangiovese grapes for this rose were selected from our Chairman’s Vineyard, located in the heart of Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. The Sangiovese Rose displays a pale crimson pink colour with intense aromas of fresh raspberries and cherries and subtle hints of rose petal and spice. The palate is juicy and fresh with cranberry and strawberry flavours. The subtle spice and crisp acidity in this Rose provides a long, dry finish.
95 Points | James Halliday Wine Companion
“Pressed, juice cold-settled, racked to stainless steel tanks, lightly fined. Sourced from one of the more elevated and cooler sites in the Vale, and it shows in a focused, serious rose of some class. Essence of sangiovese here with dusty red cherry, plum, dried herbs, rosemary, raspberry. Super dry to taste, concentrated with clean, driving acidity.” – Jeni Port
The 2019 vintage began with excellent rainfall in winter and early spring which set the vines up very well. Budburst was on time followed by a mild and dry spring. January saw some extremely warm days but fortunately the vine canopies had good vigour which helped to shade the bunches during the hot conditions. The final ripening period continued to be dry however, temperatures were mild and conditions were ideal for steady ripening and flavour development. The fruit was in great condition at picking and had excellent flavours and aromas.
