This Montepulciano Rosé was Seletiv Harvested in March from the Amadio vineyard in the Northern Adelaide Hills. It was left on skins to develop a pale colour and then pressed to large format French oak.  I was wild fermented and left in barrel for 7 months to develop texture and depth.

This one is for all the loyal Rosé drinkers out there; the ones who have always drunk it regardless of fashion. This wine was made with intent – not just a by-product or an after thought. Montepulciano grapes from the northern reaches of the Adelaide Hills were destemmed, gently pressed to barrel and left to begin a slow, wild ferment. A further 5 months in oak to develop intensity has resulted in a luscious strawberries and cream palate that’s just begging to be the life of the party. Grab it now before GB drinks the lot.
