Appearance: Medium red
Aroma/Bouquet: Bursting ripe raspberries, plums, Turkish delight, musk confectionery with lifted pepper and spice including nuances of clove.

Barossa - Eden Valley GSM (Grenache/Shiraz/Mataro)
Barossa - Eden Valley Grenache Rosé
Vineyard: At the end of our old-vine garden path there is a Fairytale come true, Carl Lindner’s 85 year old bush vine Grenache garden in the Barossa.
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: After hand picking in the last week of March, winemaker Elena Brooks let the free run basket pressed juice ferment with natural indigenous yeasts in old French Oak barriques. The wine sat on yeast lees for twenty weeks before bottling without secondary fermentation, fining or filtration to capture the essence of our Fairytale.
Appearance: True translucent, lightly coloured, free-run salmon or Fairytale pink with unadulterated orange onion skin hues.
Aroma/Bouquet: Pure Grenache sweet n’ sour aromatics: the best of the variety’s juicy fruit combined with the best of the variety’s languid, gruff spice. Bath salts, lavender, roses, and the stoney, sandy ground of the vineyard just before rain.
Palate: A drying raspberry entry followed by more raspberries. Fresh and zingy with a long palate that really saturates your tastebuds with flavour.
Food Pairing: Enjoy chilled & pair with spicy cuisine, shell fish or a rich and creamy Mushroom Risotto.
