The Story

This wine is made in similar style to the highly popular Rosnay Vintage Chardonnay sparkling white launched in 2008. The Shiraz (80%) and Mourverdre (20%) fruit is picked early, for natural acidity, pressed and chilled immediately for a clean ferment, then sent to a specialist winery to be made into natural sparkling wine using the Australian Charmat method with organic sugar.

The wine style is leaner than the 2009 sparkling white, with lower total acidity (6 grams per litre) and lower residual sugar (4 grams per litre). This wine is packaged beautifully and sealed with a high quality, low permeability cork. To our knowledge this wine is unique – it is the only certified organic sparkling Rose in Australia.

“Very pretty, bright pink wine smelling of lollies, spices and berries. Fresh and creamy palate with lots of berry fruit flavours and plenty of 'fizz'.” Four Stars 2010, Winestate Magazine

“The freshness lightness and vigour in the fruit really reflect out of the wine’s character. Sparkling Rose is an interesting variant and it comes off neatly here with classic flavours, crisp fresh acidity and a dryness on the finish. Don’t expect lashings of sweet ripe fruit even though it is made from Shiraz and Mourverdre fruit, instead the subtleties of the wine is what does the talking 87/100 – Good. Paul Ippolito, 22 March 2010

“As clean as a whistle, aromatic and vibrant with bright berry fruit flavours, lively bubbles, a persistent bead and a clean finish”. Rob Geddes MW, Illawarra Mercury, 4/3/2010

“See-through cherry in colour, and the nose offers slightly confected pear-drop flavours. The palate has a spritzig zip to it with generous amounts of red-berry fruits in abundance. A slightly ripe, fruit-driven, crisp acid finish”. Jim McMahon, Corkscrew 15/3/2010
