ROSÉ BRUT (SPARKLING) 2013

This is a Méthode Traditonnelle sparkling wine, based predominantly on Pinot Noir from the Honey Moon Vineyard (80% of the cuvée) combined with Adelaide Hills Chardonnay (20%). It is pale rose pink in colour and has delicious aromas, flavours and a lovely creamy texture – a culmination of the flavours in the grapes, fermentation in very old French oak barriques and, at the time of writing, close to 4 years on yeast lees. The wine is disgorged by hand, on demand.

ROSE BRUT

FANCY ROSÉ 2017

This rosé was made in the vineyard first – by early harvesting of Pinot Noir and Shiraz from suitable sections of our vineyard and by sourcing delicate Chardonnay from cool Adelaide Hills sites.  We then turned to our love of Chablis-style Chardonnays – fine, textural and refreshing – to guide our winemaking.  Our intention was to make a rosé that would combine lovely fresh new season fruit and good acidity, with good flavour on the mid-palate and a silky texture … plus we wanted the wine to evolve nicely over the next 5 years or so.  The 2017 vintage provided near-perfect conditions for this.

PINOT NOIR – EXTRA 2013

Selected in Adelaide Review Hot 100 2015/16

This Pinot is the first one we have called “extra”. Not only were the 2013 vintage conditions extra special for producing wonderful grapes, we also had the delight of “experimenting” with two additional clones – MV6 and GM18 – as well as with wild ferments, whole bunches etc.
