James Halliday – 50% pinot noir, 50% grenache. 4 hours skin contact, cool ferment with wild yeast. Interesting combination of varieties, with the sweet strawberry character of pinot and more savoury influence of grenache. The end result is attractive red berry fruit on the bouquet and palate, good texture and flavour, and a nicely dry finish. Very well balanced overall. - Steven Creber, 1 August 2019.

About This Wine

Made from Pinot Noir and Grenache this Rosé is mouthwateringly delicious with fresh strawberry, rhubarb and fresh fig flavours. It is the Grenache component that creates the luscious, generous fleshy mouthfeel. Handpicked, sorted and whole bunch pressed to stainless steel tank to maximise varietal expression. We are careful to reduce skin contact with the juice to keep the colour restrained to this beautiful pale salmon pink. Bottled early to be sure to capture those amazing fruit characters.

Yarra Valley Wine

The Yarra Valley wine region is the most important area of wine production in Victoria today, and with its proximity to Melbourne, also the most visited in the state.

Yarra Valley is split into the Upper Yarra and the valley floor. The Upper Yarra is cooler in climate due to its elevation and coupled with younger, fertile, red soils produces most of the region’s notable varietals: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The valley floor is warmer and has predominantly grey soils with pockets of granite and limestone.

Pinot noir has long been considered a notoriously difficult variety to grow. However, the cool climate and longer growing seasons of the Yarra Valley allow the fruit to develop full flavoured and ripe character.

Chardonnay in the past has long been associated with a deep oily, buttery style that experiences full malolactic fermentation and great amounts of oak. This style has since fallen out of favour and wine makers in the Yarra Valley have capitalized on this trend to produce leaner, acid driven Chardonnays that are closer in style to those from Burgundy.
