WINEMAKING: The Sangiovese was harvested on a cool night with immediate delivery to the winery for the commencement of the winemaking process. The fruit was perfectly ripe for Rose, 11.8 Baume which provided enough raspberry flavour without any under ripe acidic flavours. Free run juice was used for the production of this wine, juice clarification was followed by fermentation in tank with exotic yeast selected to promote red berry fruit aromas. The wine post ferment was simply fined using vegan friendly products and clarified for bottling. This wine was made whilst maintaining The Natural Wine Co’s minimal intervention philosophy.
TASTING NOTES: I like rosé and I like this. It is light in colour, which makes it nice to look at, and not to mention that it's light on additives. The flavours offer some substance, its strawberry and cream, soft in the mouth and as close friend of ours described it, it’s just ‘like those lollies I used to have as a child!’ It sounds pretty good to me. Best consumed in moderation with good friends.

The Wine Front, Gary Walsh, Nov 2018
“Made from the Italian red variety sangiovese, as are so many modern Australian rosés, this is a perfect tipple for the veranda on a sunny summer afternoon. Or wash down some good pizza with this dry, refreshing pink wine.”
