This very pale rosé belies a powerfully flavoured, persistent and layered drink, and a true expression of the Provencal style. Floral notes of star jasmine and wet stone leap from the glass together with wild strawberry and fresh pastry undertones. The palate is creamy and textured, with juicy nectarine flavours and aromatic orange zest. Beautifully refreshing and very satisfying, this dry rosé shows definition and drive on the palate with an intriguing frame of tannins and a distinctive saline aftertaste.
100% Hazel’s Vineyard. Our southernmost vineyard further inland than our Burnside and Calgardup vineyards. Hazel’s combines cooling Southern Ocean influences with a northerly aspect and plenty of sunshine.
100% Mourvedre. The parcels of certified biodynamic fruit from our Hazel’s Vineyard were hand-picked in the early, cooler hours of the morning. The fruit was then refrigerated overnight and gently pressed to a
stainless-steel tank. Only the first and best fraction of the juice was selected, ensuring a light colour and only the most delicate flavours were extracted from the berries. A cool and slow fermentation was
encouraged and after fermentation the wine spent 6 months on fine lees in order achieve texture and complexity.
A season of great balance, which produced wines of grace, perfume, and longevity. Winter was wet and cooler than average, and we experienced a cool but dry spring across the Margaret River region. Good flowering conditions resulted in good bunch numbers and weights, producing good yields after three years of tiny crops. Summer was one of the driest on record with relatively mild temperatures leading into January; these conditions delayed canopy development but January bought fantastic weather with warm, sunny, and breezy days as hoped, but without any temperature spikes and heat stress.Excellent diurnal temperature variation was a constant of this season, setting us up for a highly aromatic vintage and perfect phenological ripeness of the skins and seeds. All red varieties loved the dryer conditions and are showing excellent potential with nerve, beautiful purple colours, and vibrant aromatcs.
