A delicious rosé, starting with its salmon pink hue; red fruits, floral with a salivating finish makes it perfect for all occasions.

The Vineyard
The varieties in this rosé lend themselves nicely to this style of wine. Shiraz is found across all three of our vineyards, while the smaller portion of grenache is grown on our Crossroads vineyard. Portions of these blocks are adjusted to ensure a bright expression of these fruit profiles. This can be achieved throughout the season with management of fruit load by pruning decisions, canopy manipulation which allows sunlight and airflow through, irrigation scheduling to retain canopy freshness, and of course harvest timing at the end of the season. The aim is to produce an elegant fruit profile which is not overly complicated. A mild spring in 2022 led into a dry and calm summer. Grapevine ripening continued steadily throughout with harvest commencing mid-February. Overall, this was another stellar Margaret River growing season.
Winemaking
Both shiraz and grenache were harvested during the cool of night, crushed and rapidly pressed to capture aromatic vibrancy with minimal colour and tannin extraction. The juice was either cold settled or was clarified by flotation, a rapid lees separation technique using inert gas. Low temperature fermentation began using a selected yeast to accentuate fresh varietal characteristics. Stainless tank ferment proceeded to dryness with individual lots resting on lees for a month. Once the final blend was assembled, displaying great fruit purity, it was minimally fined and filtered before being Estate bottled.
