2017 Rosé (Cabernet Malbec) -
This 2016 Rosé was made from 100% dry grown Clare Valley fruit. The blend composition is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon with the remainder comprising Malbec. Hand selected ripe fruit, harvested specifically for this wine, has resulted in a stylish wine with intense fruit character and varietal expression.
All fruit was blended at the receival bin, destemmed and chilled to 5oC. To achieve the desirable level of colour and flavour extraction, the juice was left on skins for around 20 hours in the press. The free-run juice and light pressings were then cold-settled, racked and fermented cool to express the fruit characters of both the Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine shows a vibrant crimson with a purple tint. There are aromas of wild strawberries, blackcurrant, fresh cranberry and hints of rosewater. The palate is slick, fresh and lively with some natural acid backbone. There is a succulent balance of flavours that include cherry, Satsuma plum and raspberry.
This wine is best served chilled, especially during the warmer months and is a great match for many food styles, particularly duck and light meats, fresh seafood and contemporary Asian cuisine.
