2020 Chaffey Bros Wine Co. Lux Venit Rosé

Barossa Valley Rosé Winery Of The Year - Melbourne International Wine Competition

Vineyard: Located in southern Barossa Valley in the Lyndoch region.  These premium, old Grenache and Mourvèdre vines is regarded as Chaffey’s best parcel of wine grapes.

Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2020 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced, due to the lower than average rainfall recordings. A dry combination of all seasons was challenging with unfavourable winds disrupting vine fruit set and below average cool temperatures in the evenings. The summer season delivered the usual hot daily temperatures delivering a small but premium batch of fruit.

Wine making: Grenache 88% Mourvèdre 12%

Wild ferment and un-fined, with three months in French oak barrels.

Aroma/Bouquet: Delicate perfume with hints of rose petals, toffee apples and fairy floss.

Palate: Bursting with summer freshness, it’s light, yet delicate with a dry and crunchy palate. Texture will come with bottle age but consuming in its youth offers fruits of strawberries, raspberries and royal gala apples.
