2021 Haru Rouge
Notes from the iconic importers, Living Wines!
This new cuvée from the Milan family is a delightful, light red wine made from Syrah, Carignan and Grenache. This one was also made by Theo Milan and the influence of Japan on him shines through with the name Haru heralding the onset of spring. The grapes went through carbonic maceration for a week before being pressed and then allowed to settle in the tank until Spring when it was bottled. This treatment has resulted in very light tannins, pleasant acidity and a light colour for a red wine but it is extremely tasty and can be served slightly chilled. Théo is definitely showing that he has a deft touch with red wines and is not afraid to treat them very gently to produce light, expressive wines that are perfect for drinking at any time of the year and can even be slightly chilled when serving, especially in Australia’s oppressive summer heat.
