BLEND: 50% Shiraz, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot.
REGION: Central Ranges, NSW
HARVEST: 23rd of February for Shiraz, 24th of February for the Merlot and
10th of March for the Cabernet Sauvignon.
WINEMAKING: The 3 different varieties were picked separately when ripe for
our Rosé style, harvested early in the morning and delivered
straight to winery, to conserve delicate fruit aromas. Fruit was
destemmed and the juice drained directly off skins, keeping only
the free run juice as we wanted a lighter bodied style with a light
blush colour. Juice was clarified before undergoing fermentation
at cool temperature to promote a more aromatic style of wine.
Fermentation was stopped just prior to being finished, giving
us the small amount of residual sugar and the higher level of
dissolved CO2 that both occur naturally in the wine. Stabilised
and very quickly prepared for bottling so we could the release the
wine young and fresh!
