Rosé season is here! There’s nothing that says warm, sunny, fun filled days like a glass of crisp, refreshing, fruity (yet complex) Rosé.
Each year our winemaker Rob Ellis sets aside a parcel or two of grapes that speak to him, that are something too special to get blended away into something else. This year one of those wines was this, Sangiovese Rosé.
The Sangiovese grapes come from the Tarzali vineyard in the Strathbogie Ranges. You may have tried the table red version but this year is different.
Last year Rob did a couple of collaborations with a French winemaker friend who made a spectacular Rosé by utilizing some pretty great winemaking techniques. This year Rob decided he might try something similar. Here’s some of the things he’s done to make this Rosé extra delicious:
As you can see, much thought, love and effort went into this Rosé. The end result is fresh and vibrant, whilst also being smooth and complex. All in all very, very drinkable!
This is a one-off wine, only 150 dozen were made. These special parcels of Rob’s are only available to Wine Club members and those who come into cellar door. They tend to go very quickly so make sure you get in quick.
