James Halliday – There's both grip and body to this flavoursome rosé. Tangerine, redcurrant, earth and sweet spice notes burst through the palate, bringing whispers of cedar along for the ride. It's fun to drink, sure, but it's more than that; there's substance to this. - Campbell Mattinson
About This Wine
Wine Making Notes
The Mourvèdre grapes were picked in early March when fruit showed good flavour and attractive natural acidity. In the winery, 75 per cent of the grapes were whole bunch pressed to stainless steal tank while 15 per cent were left on skins for a short amount of time before being pressed to the same tank. This juice was allowed to ferment wild. The wine matured in tank until it was ready to be bottled. A stelvin closure is used to seal this wine.
This Rosé is light salmon-pink in colour with aromas of red apple, citrus rind and hints of honey suckle. The palate is fresh, showing pretty red berries, mandarin juice acidity and subtle spice. This Rosé stays true to the Henrietta range, offering a bright and fresh wine to be enjoyed with any occasion.
The Heathcote wine region in central Victoria is well known for its excellent red wines, most notably Shiraz. Heathcote reds are defined by their inky depth of colour, and deep, dark complex fruit flavours. This is combined with well balanced tannins and acid that help to give the wines great cellaring potential.
All this is made possible by the terroir. The Heathcote region sits at between 160m and 380m elevation with a temperate climate of even rainfall. The soils are rich in calcium red soils made up of “greenstone”. These soils are prized for their water retention capabilities allowing them to drain freely but still hold enough water throughout the growing season. The grapes that result are small and concentred which in turn make rich concentrated wines.
