Tasting Profile

August 2021

The engaging and vibrant nose offers red floral notes with a peppery spice, together with fresh summer berries and orange zest. Gently flowing and finely chiselled, the palate delivers flavours of strawberry, raspberry and fresh cream. The finish is dry, savoury and capped with a moreish red-berry acidity.

The Winefront, October 2021

Campbell Mattinson

It has the most gorgeous copper hue and while it’s distinctly savoury around the edges it’s also deliciously refreshing in a fruit-driven way. Redcurrant and strawberry with earth, vanilla cream, orange blossom and dried herb highlights. It’s a delightful wine to drink: tart, fruity, savoury, energetic and precise, all at once.

Halliday Wine Companion, February-March 2022

Jane Faulkner

A light and enticing copper hue. When slightly chilled, this Rosé means Summer in a glass. Really lovely aromatics: all florals and red berries, quite spicy too. Starts fruit-sweet on the palate then savouriness takes over all the way to a dry, fresh finish. Excellent Rosé in anyone’s book.

The Real Review, December 2021

Aaron Brasher

Really pale onion-skin colour and lively in the glass. Aromas of sap, spice, dried herbs and pomegranate. Delicate and focused on the palate, cherry, musksticks, stone fruit, spice, textured, layered and long.

The Vintage

Although 2020 Winter was mild, it provided excellent rainfall, with approximately 225mm falling evenly throughout June, July, and August. Budburst commenced in the second week of September, a typical start to a season on the Mornington Peninsula. Spring presented typical conditions with fluctuating temperatures and rainfall. Temperatures stabilised before flowering, and the region experienced favourable conditions throughout this critical time of the season. All our vineyards enjoyed good flowering and fruit set. While early Summer rainfall was below average, conditions shifted to wet and humid during January. The viticultural team worked diligently to ensure our vineyards remained disease-free. Veraison commenced mid-January, earlier than the last couple of seasons. Our vineyards were replenished with good natural rainfall during this time, thus satisfying the increased water demand of grapevines. The sunny but relatively cool weather throughout February meant ripening was slow and steady. Harvest commenced in early March and continued into early April. The weather remained mild throughout, and harvest progressed at an even pace, providing ideal conditions.

The Vineyard

The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts in old French oak barriques and large-format foudre. Once dry, the wine was left on lees for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining.
