Aroma & Palate
|Rose & red berries|
(Review is of the 2018 vintage; grape composition of 2019 vintage differs)
From syrah and pinot noir from the Thousand Candles site, lovingly farmed by Stuart Proud, a vineyard wunderkind, and now the wine is made by him too. Feels like Thousand Candles has found its mojo.
Nice rose, straight up red cherry, raspberry, light cream scents and flavours – a strong echo between bouquet and palate. Vanilla-cream lands on cherry in the palate, there’s supple licks of creaminess in texture, slips long and refreshing. Fun loving little thing, feels perky and fresh, built for all-comers. Simple, done well.
91/100 - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
Fresh scents of cherries, raspberries and some light spiciness from the Merlot. Red berries and cream on the palate with a slippery mouthfeel and slight herbal spice.
Handpicked, pressed to the tanks and fermented prior to ageing for 4 months in old French oak.
A tasty and textural round rosé whether served with food or by itself.
Our ambition at thousand candles has always been to try and capture the detail of our unique vineyard site in the wines we produce.
Located in the Yarra Valley, 65 kilometres northeast of Melbourne, the thousand candles farm is a historic, sprawling property that stretches over 1100 acres. It comprises of vineyards, cattle pastures, and native bush.
We take the approach that the vineyard comes first and foremost. By looking after our soils using biological farming methods, along with minimal intervention in the winery we firmly believe the wines always show more depth, balance and complexity.
