REGION

Yarra Valley

 

VINEYARD

The fruit is sourced from the Wood vineyard, grown on a highly exposed north facing slope at the De Bortoli Dixons Creek Estate in the Yarra Valley. It was planted in 2007 to a selection of premium clones of Nebbiolo including the highly perfumed 111 Rosé clone and Lampia selections Mat 7, 9 and 10 and 230.

 

SEASON

Mild dry growing season, timely spring rain, slow ripening, terrific flavour development.

 

TASTING NOTE

Very pale, savoury, lifted cherry like aromas. Textural, chalky, gentle acidity, mouth watering flavours.

 

WINEMAKING

Hand picked, whole bunch pressed. Settled overnight and racked to old barriques to complete natural fermentation. Six weeks of lees contact to give texture and mouthfeel. Gentle handling to bottle.

TASTING NOTE

A truely unique Rose made from carefully selected Cabernet and Grenache grapes grown in Lovedale.  Given the Dan Binet / Block Eight rose love, this wine is sensational.  Dry and fruity, driven by fresh berry notes, it is the perfect wine for sharing with friends.  Serve with a wide array of foods including tomato based pastas, tagines and roast vegetable salads or pair it with desserts like fresh seasonal fruit or chocolate with chilli.
