Technical


vintage

We had a mild spring with adequate soil moisture, resulting in a slightly later season. A moderate summer led to ideal ripening conditions with little pressure in the vineyard and a lack of any major rain events during the ripening season. Consistently warm days and cool evenings made for great retention of acid within the grapes, whilst achieving optimal fruit expression.

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. 

Sangiovese (69%), Merlot (20%) and Tempranillo (11%) make up the core of the wine, all largely grown in the Yallingup Hills. The Sangiovese and Merlot parcels were fermented separately on light lees in stainless steel, then matured for a further two months prior to clarification. The Tempranillo was hand-picked and underwent wild fermentation in old French oak puncheons and remained there for three months prior to blending.

Reviews

Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion, October 2023

Bring 69/20/11% Sangiovese/Merlot/Tempranillo into the mix, and the result is a Rosé that’s a pastel pink blush dressed in fine acidity with flavour and a shapely palate. Plenty of tangy red-accented fruits from strawberries to redcurrants all spiced up. A lovely, slippery texture with fine acidity driving this long. Excellent Rosé in anyone’s book.

Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2024

Now firmly established a one of Australia's foremost Rosés. Pale onion skin colour is classically modern Rosé. The aromas are all strawberry and cherry. The palate offers texture on its light frame creating such an enticing current drinking wine. A wine that really sings with energy and vibrance.

James Suckling, November 2023

Notes of wild strawberries, cherry blossom and grapefruit peel. Sleek and creamy on the palate with the texture of ripe nectarines and a refreshing finish.
