2020 Little Brunswick Wine Co. Jardwadjali Grampians Rosé
Grown by Garry Rice at the Concongella Vineyard near Stawell.
This Syrah based rose from cane pruned vines is managed excellently and always produces a concentrated rose. in 2020 we lightly crushed and destemmed the fruit before it was fermented in large oak. The wine completed malolactic ferment in stainless steel before bottling in July. It has spent time sitting to develop slightly in bottle and is now showing characters of red apple, watermelon rind, cucumber and pear. It reminds me of the feeling you get when you find out that your new mate has a pool. Unfiltered, unfined, vegan, organic practices.
