The Regional Range Rosé is produced from Tempranillo sourced from the Geographe wine regaion in Western Australia. Millbrook Winemaker Emma Gillespie has found that the Tempranillo grown here is perfect for producing the crisp and coveted European style of Rosé which has become so popular around the world.
Emma utilises a delicate winemaking approach to further harness this delicacy – the Tempranillo undergoes a gentle pressing cycle and the ferment is kept at cool temperatures to retain aromatic freshness. The resulting Millbrook Regional Range Rosé is pale blush in colour, with a dry, refreshing and fruit-forward palate found only in the very best Rosé wines. This wine is brimming with red berries and strawberry shortcake, achieving the ultimate Rosé balance of dryness, acidity and fruit.

The 2022 vintage was preceded by a very wet winter leading to good, healthy vine growth. Intense heat and dry months over the summer led to decreased yields however the dry, sunny days provided a natural barrier to disease, and extensive marri blossom kept bird pressure at bay. Some bunches suffered from sunburn, however the challenges in the vineyard were minimal. Although yield was lower than average, the quality of fruit has resulted in outstanding wines with vibrant natural acidity, perfect for making fresh Rosé wine.
A modern style, salmon pink rose was created in the winery, with specifically chosen fruit batches that were handled with temperature controlled, low oxygen winemaking techniques. This ensured a fine, light-bodied wine was produced for early blending and bottling to capture to prime rose drinking window of summertime at the beach or in the backyard.
