TASTING NOTES

PLACE

Clare Valley.

Kilikanoon wines are masterfully composed from diverse vineyard sites and sub-regions, delivering an elegant and approachable style.

VINTAGE

This year, our Rosé was made as a cuveé of two old grenache vineyards, one adjacent the old Watervale Hotel and the other, a vineyard in Leasingham that was planted in 1944.

Both vineyards are well suited to making Rosé, possessing larger, juicier berries that have lower skin to juice ratios, thus maximising flavour. Both vineyards are hand pruned and hard harvested and managed in a very sustainable way.

WINEMAKING

Picked earlier that would otherwise for a fuller bodied red wine, both vineyards were harvested around 12.5 degrees Baumé to ensure freshness and a savoury to red cherry flavour spectum was achieved. Only given one hour skin contact, both parcels were gently pressed off and cold settled before fermenting cool at 13 degrees for 3 weeks. 0.65% of dry grown Mataro was added to introduce some additional spicy and savoury notes.

SENSORY

Colour: 

Pale salmon pink in colour with brillant clarity and appearance.

Aroma: 

Rose petal, raspberries and alluring spring garden perfumes.

Palate: 

A very inviting and fresh wine, bringing together the flavours of red cherries, oriental spices and rose petals, beautifully balanced with zesty natural acidity and a touch of naturally retained grape sweetness. Although made to enjoy whilst young, additional benefit will be attained from one to two years of careful cellaring.

CELLARING

Best consumed young but will develop additional complexity with 1 – 2 years in the cellar.


Storage: Keep dry and cool, avoid direct sunlight
