MOURVÈDRE ROSÉ 2022

$28.00

A lorious light salmon colour with bright flouscents, a lifted perfume of exotic herbs, spice and mixed cherry – ripe, sour and maraschino. Subtle oak tones give mouthfeel and texture, crisp acidty frames and refreshes the palate with length inviting another sip!

Pair with all manner of cuisines, particularly those that carry spice and heat; Asian flavours are favored – think Thai, Vietnamese or indeed Indian currys.

This 2022, the third vintage of Clandestine Vineyards Rose follows a style of European, dry textural roses, rather than the plethora of juicy, off dry styles now all too common in Australia.

A new single vineyard location in heart of McLaren Vale has been selected for it’s warmer, maritime micro-climate and soils ideally suited to Mourvedre; the vineyard was planted in 2013 from cuttings of the original d’Arenberg clone. Harvested early for rose production, the colour of the final wine is due to the limited skin contact with the juice – in this case, in the picking bins only – no further maceration is required.

The grapes are destemmed, crushed, cold pressed and the resulting bright pink juice is then stabilised in steel before being racked into older French oak barriques for 100% barrel fermentation; but not malolactic.

Vegan too! (the wine, that is!)
