2023 Discovery Grenache Rosé

cherry blossom | pomegranate | red currant

$17.00

Grenache is the perfect rosé variety as the moderate maritime climate of Margaret River allows for slow ripening, greater retention of aromatics and gradual development of softer textures and succulent natural acidity. Fermentation in seasoned 500L French Oak puncheons adds an additional dimension of flavour and texture to this otherwise pristine and bone dry rosé.

GROWING SEASON 

A sensational growing season. A moderate spring and start to summer allowed for slow and consistent flavour development, followed by a warm and dry finish leading into Autumn. The wines are bold and flavoursome, boasting exceptional concentration and intensity.    

VARIETY

Grenache

WINEMAKING

The fruit is hand-harvested, gently destemmed then pressed immediately to extract only the finest tannin and minimal colour. The juice is 100% barrel fermented in seasoned 500L Puncheons. After fermentation the blend is aged on lees in oak with fortnightly battonage for 2 months. This process enhances mouth feel and introduces additional layers of complexity.

CELLARING POTENTIAL

Up to 3 years
