Rosnay Blanc 2013
- Vegan Suitable
- Certified Organic
Bronze Medal, August 2017, Cowra National Wine Show
What a bargain for Christmas! After three or four years in the bottle this wine is coming of age. The nose has abundant floral character, and the palate has soft minerally Semillon acidity and a full rounded body with well ripened Chardonnay fruit characters.
The Rosnay vineyard comprises 4 ha of Chardonnay, the classic premium wine for which the Cowra region is best known, and 2 ha of semillon, planted specifically for blending with Chardonnay to give minerality and acid balance. After two wet years, 2013 was relatively dry and mild. The fruit was picked and pressed on 12th of February 2013, and co-fermented together without oak.

Vintage & Winemaking
2013 was a drier season, resulting in a lower yield of quality, disease free fruit. Chardonnay (60%) and Semillon (40%) were grown using biodynamic viticulture and picked on 12 February 2013. Co-fermented and made without oak and with minimal sulfites, this dry white combines the fruitiness of Chardonnay and the minerality of Semillon. In 2013 we celebrated ten years of making the unwooded Chardonnay Semillon blend.
