Tasting notes from the winery for Primrose Path Organic Rose 2019

The Primrose Path refers to a relaxed life of ease and pleasure. The trick is retaining grace and avoiding indulgence. Nowhere seems more suited to this life than South Australia, a region devoted to a culture of food and wine against a backdrop of dazzling beauty. 

The Primrose Path Organic Rose walks a similar path, grown sustainably and organically to ensure an elegant depth of flavour and beautifully dry finish. 

Rose petal, plum and raspberry supported by subtle garden herb and a touch of spice. A fragrant wine of freshness, purity and drive. Balanced from beginning to end with savoury dry flavours overlaid with alluring sweet fruit flavours. A lovely wine to enjoy with food or on its own.

Sourced exclusively from fourth generation vignerons, the Grigoriou family who are based in the heart of the dry grown vineyards of the Monash Valley. Here the vines are stronger, healthier and simply put, produce exceptional fruit year in and year out. 

VINYARDS: These well-established vineyards, up to 30 years of age, are planted in some of Australia’s most fertile soils. At just under two hours from the famed Barossa, the area is rich in nutrients, has a mostly dry climate and receives most of rainfall through Autumn, which is perfect timing. The vineyards have good vigour, so vines are regulated with drip irrigation and planted widely to allow for growth also allowing the air flow to reduce disease pressure and help sustain organic practices. 

WINEMAKING: The fruit for this wine was harvested early, so before getting too ripe in flavour and sugars to ensure fine natural acidity remained in the resultant wine. A short fermentation period solely in stainless steel ensures clean, crisp flavours and minimal oxygen contact. Crafted solely to ensure crisp, fresh fruit flavours are maintained.   

VINTAGE: 2019 will be remembered for the one that failed to produce much fruit. There was a deficit in rain during the summer which made it difficult for growers to make up the shortfall instead having to rely on irrigation. Although yields were down, vines produced fruit with more intensity.

"Crisp and lively, the wine shows fresh apple, citrus and dried grass characters on the nose with a hint of raspberry. It's juicy and delicate on the palate with pristine fruit flavours backed by refreshing acidity, making it very approachable and easy to enjoy. At its best: now to 2021."
