Montepulciano Rose



Winemakers Notes

PALE – Light salmon to pink in colour as a result of skin contact with Montepulciano grapes

DRY – Savoury, moreish and light strawberry notes

ROSÈ – A beautiful wine to bring to enjoy with the warmer months

Awards & Reviews

“Yarran crafts admirable wines offering real value, none more than this thirst-slaking dry, highly attractive rose. The colour is onion skin to pale pink rather than garish. The nose, crushed strawberry, jasmine and Mediterranean allusions. The wine rides along a vein of skinsy crunch and further textural detail following a fermentation kicked off by wild yeast, partly in barrel, some of it new. Stirring has imparted breadth and a gravitas belying the price.” 93 Points, James Halliday

“Light salmon-pink colour with a savoury, subdued but appealing bouquet. The palate is light and soft, simple and slightly sweet, with a green apple taste which lingers, and slight grip. An eccentric style, but it works OK.” Huon Hooke

Whole Bunch Heathcote Shiraz



Winemakers Notes

WHOLE BUNCH – Hand picked fruit is tipped directly into open ferment vessels, with no crushing, de-stemming or pumping.

HEATHCOTE – An ideal region for Shiraz with rich red soils and hard Cambrian rock.

SHIRAZ – A soft, silky style as a result of whole bunch fermentation and partial aging in French oak barrels.
