Not Your Grandma's Rosé Chaffey Bros Wine Co
Australia – 2018
Tasting Note: Grenache contributes the raspberry and strawberry palate while Mourvèdre adds structure and a lingering spice. The splash of aromatic field blend wine emphasises strawberry, musk and Turkish delight aromas
Food Matching: Pan-fried salmon fillet with a spicy East-Asian-style salad.
Vineyard: Made from Grenache (66%) from three 30 to 60-year-old vineyards taking in the southern Barossa Valley (Lyndoch foothills) and from two northern Barossa Valley parishes (Stockwell and Moppa). Mourvèdre (25%) is the spice rack in this blend. It comes from two special vineyards, one in the western Barossa Valley (Gomersal) and one in the north (Ebenezer). Finally, a splash of Eden Valley field blend incorporating Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Kerner grown in limestone rich soil. The final product reflects a wide range of microclimates and geological distinctions that makes for complexity
Vinification: Made as a true rosé, each vineyard is picked with a view to retaining natural acidity and relying on the ancient vines to supply ample flavour despite the early harvest. Each vineyard will see between 6 - 18 hours skin contact, which during this early ripeness imparts only modest colour to the blend. Cold fermented in a temperature controlled inox fermenter using a combination of indigenous and selected yeasts to develop and protect delicate aromas. As a stylistic choice, no fining agent is used throughout the winemaking process and only minimal SO2 is added prior to bottling
