Barossa - Eden Valley Pinot Noir Rosé
Vineyard: Nestled in the Barossa Hills on the Eastern side of Eden Valley, the vineyard is one of the oldest in the region, planted in 1932 by the Lehmann family.
Season: Eden Valley received good winter rains which set the growing season off to a good start. Flowering was consistent with bunches setting well and generous quantities expected. Summer was warm and dry with the added benefit of Eden Valley's high altitude allowing cool evening's and breezes to assist with wine grapes maintaining freshness and high levels of natural acidity.
Wine making: NA
Appearance: Pale salmon pink.
Aroma/Bouquet: Crisp and lively with lifted aromas of raspberry, watermelon and apple blossom.
Palate: Vibrant, light and refreshing with delicate nuances of raspberry, confectionery, fairy floss and delicate summer berries.
Food Pairing: Grilled shellfish, tapas, spicy foods and matured cheese.
Residual Sugar: 3.4 g/L
Cellar potential: 2 years
Winemaker: Simon Adams
Barossa Eden Valley Grenache Rosé
Vineyard: Northern Eden Valley with parcels of fruit across the Barossa region.
Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2019 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced; due to the lower than average rainfall recordings. Frost disrupted the first vine buds in spring and throughout flowering which again reduced overall wine grape supply. The dry ripening season through summer kept disease pressure to a minimum and cooler high country breezes allowed the grapes to ripen for a vintage of premium quality.
Winemaking: Not Your Grandma’s Rosé is made as a true rosé (picked earlier than typical red wine). 62% of the blend is old vine Grenache which is co-fermented with 30% of old vine Mourvèdre/Mataro. The remaining 8% is an aromatic blend of Riesling, Gewürtztraminer, and Weißer Herold; also known as the Kerner grape variety.
Appearance: Pale Salmon colour
Aroma/Bouquet: Strawberry, musk and Turkish delight aromas.
Palate: Delicate, light, dry and crisp.
Food Pairing: Seafood, Pork belly and Asian cuisines.
Acidity: 5 g/L
Residual Sugar: 3 g/L
Vegan Friendly: Yes
Cellar potential: Now to 5 years
Winemaker: Daniel Hartwig & Theo Engela
