The Winemaker

‘James has spent the past eight years experimenting with Italian varieties well suited to Australian soils and climates. This rose is made from Negroamaro, which comes from the sustainably-farmed 'Box Grove' vineyard in Nagambie Lakes.’

The Wine

‘Gently pressed with a portion fermented in Slavonian cask, it shows plenty of lifted high-tone fruits such as cranberry and fresh-picked cherry. Juicy and textured with tangy salinity and a savoury/amaro-like finish. Utterly delicious and exactly how (I think) rose should be.’
