2020 Chaffey Bros Wine Co. Not Your Grandma's Rosé

Barossa Valley - Grenache Rosé

Vineyard: Northern Eden Valley with parcels of fruit across the Barossa region.

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.

Winemaking: Not Your Grandma’s Rosé is made as a true rosé (picked earlier than typical red wine). 65% of the blend is old vine Grenache which is co-fermented with 25% of old vine Mourvèdre/Mataro. The remaining 10% 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 waft from the glass. It's enticing from the beginning with mouth-watering fresh berries and slight notes of white pepper.

Palate: Delicate, light, dry and crisp wine with a hint of spice and touch of candied toffee apples on the finish.

Food Pairing: Seafood, Pork belly and a lathering of charcuterie with chargrilled vegetables of the season.
