Style: Light-bodied rosé made using stainless steel
Rosés are usually not as exhilarating as whites and reds, but there is something in this one that just makes you smile. It smells like a Syrah-based Rhone rose with notes of blueberry, raspberry and Mediterranean spice. Light, fresh and mineral on the palate. Refreshing crispiness. Medium aftertaste.
Established by the Nix family in collaboration with winemaker Paul Olds, who is known for his work on southern French winery Les Clos Perdu (translates to “the lost vineyard”, great wordplay!), this is a project that looks for the best quality and sometimes forgotten fruit, around the state of Victoria. Working from Nagambie to Heathcote to Mornington, there’s no varietal limit to their creativity. Paul has now passed the winemaking baton to the very capable hands of the talented Matt Campbell who continues the tradition of gentle handling and minimal mucking around to produce beautiful small-batch wines that truly reflect their sense of place.
