Little Brunswick Wine Co Touriga Rosé 2022
$ 29.00 incl. GST
100% Touriga Nacional, grown in the Willougby Bridge vineyard in Colbinabbin, Heathcote GI. A cool and wet vintage, not ideal for reds, it had the flipside effect of raising fantastic material for rosé here. Left two hours on skins in the press to pick up additional colour and aroma, before barrel fermentation in old French barriques. Following full malolactic fermentation the wine remained on light lees untopped until bottling.
We love the contrast here to classic Provence. Bone dry and showing the exotic and bright fruits of the variety of cherry, blueberries and rose water, with a slate edge and some fantastic texture from the barrel components. Critically, delicious, refreshing and moreish.
