95 Points, Halliday Wine Companion  //  Rosé is very exciting from Orange. In the cool climate the red grapes show some very rich red and black berry flavours when harvested.

95 Points “Pinot noir, merlot and chardonnay in this Begonia-pink rosé. Rainier cherries, pink grapefruit oil and galangal root. A textured crunch of pink lady apples followed by strawberries and cream and cherry tomato savoury tones. Layered and complex, this is supreme rosé made with commitment and application. A waxy textured finish.” 2024 Halliday Wine Companion, Shanteh Wale

Variety: Pinot Noir 70%, Merlot 18% and Chardonnay 12%

Region: Orange, NSW Central Highlands

Winemaker: Gerald Naef

Colour: Pale Salmon pink

Aroma: Fragrant, floral rose petal, strawberry and lemon drops.

Palate: A lighter style, yet mouth filling, smooth and fruity from front to mid palate culminating in a long refreshing grapefruit finish.

Cellaring: Don’t cellar this wine. It is simply too delightful now so why try to change it with age.

My Rosé has evolved over the years. I have learnt that very minimal skin contact produces a more refreshing style and doesn’t require any residual sugar to balance out the red wine characters. The pink/red colour of Rosé comes from the skins of the red grapes so, minimal skin contact produces a wine that is very pale in colour.

Pinot Noir 70%, Merlot 18% and Chardonnay 12% The Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Merlot were all whole bunch pressed. After clarifying it was fermented at cool temperature until the ferment stopped naturally. 12.6% Alc/Vol.
