This small parcel of Single Vineyard Clare Valley Rosé was pressed directly off skins within 2 hours of harvesting to achieve our desired colour. It was then cold settled for 48 hours. Fermenting at cool temperatures with a small amount of solids allowed us to create this textural perfumed wine. The wine was fermented dry, filtered and bottled.
Made with 100% Clare Valley Grenache that is picked early vintage, in the optimal conditions for its type and style. The 2022 Grenache Rose is an elegant wine that is light, dry but beautifully well-rounded.

The 2022 vintage saw plenty of rainfall during winter, which was fantastic, as it helped to nurture the vines and set up the vineyard for the spring and summer months. The growing season, leading into vintage, saw cooler days and cooler nights compared with previous years. This creates a much longer ripening period, resulting in wines with more delicate and elegant flavours while presenting their various varietal characteristics.
