vintage

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.

winemaking

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.

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?
