Palest salmon pink.


Lifted fragrant sour cherry and wild strawberry.


Wild strawberries and redcurrant are matched by a fine, long structure with a delicate savoury edge. The wine builds through the mid palate to deliver a persistent, textural and dry finish.


Enjoy now, slightly chilled.

2018 was yet another idyllic vintage in Margaret River. A steady and moderate season allowed for slow, measured flavour development that resulted in wonderful natural acidity and varietal fruit character, creating wines with incredible complexity of flavour.


This wine is produced solely from Margaret River fruit and made to sit alongside the very best wines from the Deep Woods stable. The aim was to make a contemporary style of rosé; nuanced and delicate, yet still full-flavoured. 

Tempranillo and Shiraz, both largely grown in the Yallingup Hills and some of which was oxidative-handled, was blended with a small proportion of hand-picked, barrel-fermented Vermentino. Slow and carefully managed ferments allowed for a rosé of great character, delicacy and complexity.

Superb on its own, especially with good friends, a good view and good weather.

Tempranillo and shiraz, largely tank-fermented, but with a portion fermented in barrel. Pale salmon-pink; Julian Langworthy has proved his mastery time and again with this blend, and this is no exception. The bouquet and palate alike are an exploration of wild strawberries, sour cherries and spices beyond count. It is both deep and long in flavour, and its texture is first class. This is real wine.

Pale, gently perfumed, redcurrant, dry, pitch-perfect acidity with chalky texture, and a most pleasant sort of mandarin flavour and subtle bitterness to close. Flat out delicious. Need you know more?

This shows some real interest on the nose for a rosé, without being too heavy, showcasing dried cranberries and strawberries with some herbs in the background. Fruity and exuberant, this relatively full-bodied rosé has crunchy and spicy appeal throughout. Drink now.
