Wine Maker - Marnie Roberts
Grape Variety - 100% Grenache
Region - 100% Clare Valley
Colour - Pretty, pale pink.
Bouquet - Fresh, bright and lively aromatics of cherry blossom, with red currant and strawberry notes giving the wine a delicate, fresh nose.
Palate - While the nose shows light, almost ‘sweet’ fruit aromatics, the palate is balanced and deceptively dry and crisp. Juicy strawberries shine up front with an almost zesty acid on the finish. A hint of spice and crushed dry herbs completes the picture. A medium weight Rose with forward fruit flavours on the palate.
General - Skin contact for the Grenache in this wine is limited to a 48 hour cold soak prior to pressing which gives us a base wine of great delicacy and finesse with texture and length. Ferment is stopped just prior to complete dryness to maintain the natural sugar for balance and softness. Natural acid ensures the finish is mouth-watering and plush
Serve With - This is a big, dry, berried wine that pairs beautifully with a plate of prosciutto and ripe summer tomatoes. It’s also rich enough to balance a quiche with gruyere and bacon.
