Ken Gargett - Wine Pilot

From a vineyard in the Geographe region of West Australia, planted in 1996, this wine was made with free run juice and minimal skin contact giving a light colour. Also older barrels used for fermentation for texture with no lees stirring or malolactic ferments – only 3,600 bottles produced.A lovely pale salmon pink. Gentle and subtle aromas; florals, rose petals, red fruits and cherries. Seamless and fresh, this is a Rose that lingers. It is a modern style of Aussie Rose and a mile ahead of those old clumsy sweeties. Simple and simply delicious – chill and drink with a plate of fresh seafood.

Ray Jordan - Wine Pilot

Owner Nick Stacy said he was influenced by a visit to Spain with wine man Zar Brooks when they tasted a wide selection of rosés. Not exactly life changing but an experience which helped shape his views on the style and the choice of tempranillo as his rosé variety. This is a cracking example of modern Aussie rosé based on European blueprints. In fact, he admits to trying to replicate the savoury textural style of Spain. This is from Geographe and hasa lovey mouthfeel. It’s 100 per cent barrel fermented and tasted soon after bottling it’s settled down rather well. It has a creamy textural feel in the mouth with a fine savoury acidity that helps sustain the long finish.

A pretty strawberry blonde colour with rockmelon and pink grapefruit citrus. The bright line of acid is what keeps me coming back, bone dry and juicy this is wine meant to be drunk in the sun in the great outdoors, preferably with a charcuterie platter, pickles and orchard fruits.
