Our longstanding passion for Grenache and its favourable growing conditions in the maritime climate of McLaren Vale, inspired our ambition to produce a vibrant dry rosé perfectly suited to accompany lighter cuisine and enormously refreshing during the warmer months of the year.
The growing season for vintage 2020 began with good winter rainfall, followed by a dry but cool spring. Unfortunately fruit set was poor which kept crop levels below average. After a hot December the rest of the summer was cool and on the first 2 days of February we received some lovely rain from the North with 31mm recorded in the gauge at Amery.
The rain helped fill the dry soil profile and flesh out berries lifting fruit flavours and enhancing wine quality. Weather conditions for the final ripening period were cool and dry, perfect for flavour development.
