2018 Yangarra Estate Grenache Rosé 

Wine Notes: Yangarra Estate is celebrated for its highly aromatic, and gently spice driven class leading Grenache fruit. Its bush vines are harvested early in the season capturing the sweet and lively pink lady apple crunchiness of the skins, leading to a very pale coloured, elegant and dry style of Rosé - think lean French Provence style. The Grenache Rosé displays delicate rose hip and strawberry aromas with a juicy crisp palate. It’s one of Australia’s true greats - a wine we’re particularly passionate about. 

With Food: Do we really need food? Just crack the bottle and enjoy! Seriously, cheese and charcuterie platters of your desire are well matched with this wine. Enjoy with friends - smile!

2017 Ngeringa Rosé 

Wine Notes: The Ngeringa Rosé is made with Syrah fruit from three cool climate vineyards including the summit vineyard, planted at 380m above sea level in the Adelaide Hills. With this comes a slower ripening period that produces a greater expression of aromatics and lively fruit flavours. 

Fragrances of mandarin and citrus blossom are softly weighted with richer mixed forest berries. A lifted acidic crispness of red apples makes it summery and fresh. This wild fermented wine has been matured in seasoned French oak; gentle classical Syrah spice touches broaden its length of the palate. Lingering flavours of lively berry fruit are wonderfully balanced and offer a pleasing savoury depth. The mouthfeel is silky.

With Food: As this is a slightly fuller-flavoured Rosé, it works extremely well with food. We suggest lighter style meals like a burrata salad or salade Niçoise. Can also be paired with white rind cheeses such as camembert and brie.

2018 Paxton Rosé  - Organic/Biodynamic

Wine Notes: A more exotic and complex fragrant Rosé, the Paxton is a good example of how subtle flavour variations are present with differing varietal Rosé wines. The Paxton Rosé is made from a blend of Grenache & Shiraz fruit. 

Delightful aromatics of rose petal, strawberries and watermelon burst from the glass, combining to make a palate teasing experience that pleases the mind. Its palate is bright and zesty with a layering of fruit driven flavours including: subtle plum, cherry and guava. The finish is nicely balanced and features a touch of minerality.

With Food: The wine’s cherry and guava influence allows it to pair well with pan-seared duck, however we suggest slicing the duck and making a salad of pecan nuts, forest berries and rocket leaves. Dress lightly.
