What the Experts Say 

(Review is of the 2017 vintage)

Good label design. Crown on the label, for the King Valley wines.

Cherry, a little spice and watermelon. It’s still young, and carrying a spritz, but has an almost earthy flavour in with the cherry and strawberry. Acidity sits well within the wine, and the finish is dry and pretty long. Nicely done. Easy to enjoy.

90/100 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Winemakers Comments

Rosato is Italian Rosé. I named this a Rosato as it's made from indigenous Italian cultivars - Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, and Barbera amongst a Syrah base. The style is plush, dry and intense. I've made this to be enjoyed with both delicate and rich flavours whether sweet or savoury. I don’t just want wine lovers to enjoy this wine in the warmer months, but equally to enjoy it sitting around a winter bonfire. This is made using a combination of Saignée (a.k.a. bleeding a red wine of its pink juice) and wholebunch pressing to extract the perfect amount of textural richness, brightness in colour and fruit intensity. It's then fermented as one wine all the way through, so to make sure this is an integrated wine right from the get-go. Chin-chin!
