2021 Rose di Renzo

$32.00 inc. GST
A delicious, savoury rose packed full of flavour.
The Rose di Renzo has on display a familiar face of the Koala interpreted by the legendary Hill End Artist, Luke Sciberras. Whilst we all know what a Koala looks like so intimately, it’s still an incredibly special occasion to see one in the wild. We’ve had numerous of such occasions in the past 2 years. The first of which on our own land was spotted by a guest at the cellar door mid way through 2019. The fact that the number of Koala sitings around our home is only increasing as the years past is hugely motivating. These beautiful creatures can co exist with our vineyard operation and we are driven to transition these sitings from rarities to common place.

WINEMAKING NOTES

A blend of Pinot Noir from Kylie and Scott Mosley’s vineyard on the Amaroo road- harvested on 21 February and Gewurtztraminer (15%) from the Boree Lane vineyard harvest on February 19. The Pinot component was pressed straight to a single old French oak puncheon for fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The gewurtz was fermented in stainless with 25% whole berry inclusion for texture and structure prior to being pressed off to barrel. Both had 7 months elevage in old wood prior to blending, a light filtration and a small sulphur addition.

The Rose di Renzo has a delicate, ferrous, salmon colour. It is very aromatic showing papaya and strawberry supported by a yeast driven generosity. In the mouth it’s firm and savoury, with ripe red apple complemented by a satisfying texture that will ensure this rose is well suited to a wide range of foods.
