Description

VINEYARD

Gravelly soils overlaying clays and 1300my old granites…typical of the Great southern wine region. The Grenache which was used for this rose was from the tops of the hills were the gravel is better developed and the grape quality higher.

TASTING NOTES

Fresh strawberry and water melon with hints of rose water on the nose and following through on the palate. This generous rose exhibits approachable subtle tannins balanced with the acidity creating a long lasting impression.

VINTAGE NOTES

Starting the season, good rain events produced strong growth, canopies and budburst flowing to excellent yields and creating one of the best vintages in a decade. Progressing to a  long cool summer providing the  slow steady ripening  of fruit that gives us the intense flavour and acidity that we hope and dream for every vintage.  All areas of the Great Southern were gifted this incredible season and fruit from all the Rockcliffe Vineyards looking superb.
