Spring Seed Morning Bride Rose 2019
- Certified Organic
RegionMcLaren Vale, SA
With a nose of strawberries and watermelon rind with a hint of ginger, the palate tastes of refreshing red fruits. Serve chilled as an aperitif or with a variety of foods such as cheese, a crab salad or the traditional caramelised onion tart from the south of France, pissaladière.
Our intention is to make a pale pink dry Rosé reminiscent of the Mourvèdre-based wines from the South of France.
Tasting notes from the winery for Spring Seed Morning Bride Rose 2019
This palest of pink roses creates the most delicate effect in the glass. The bride has a nose of watermelon rind and strawberries. Drink gently chilled on a summer's evening or match with some charcuterie and mild cheeses. Wine from this bottle has been filled shows a very high satisfaction rate.
Spring Seed Wines are made from grapes lovingly grown in our family’s organic vineyard, located in the premium wine region of McLaren Vale, South Australia. The vineyard was established in the early 1970’s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth, and is now owned and run by their son Joch, who began the conversion to organic viticulture in 1995. The vines are fully certified ‘A’ grade organic by Australian Certified Organic, a process that takes four years and involves yearly audits and random sampling of produce.
The Spring Seed Wine labels are unashamedly inspired by vintage flower seed packets created at the turn of the last century. The colour, clarity and beauty of the original seed packets are quite remarkable. We have chosen the Canna, Mourning Bride and Calliopsis flower images for our Rosé labels.
Our intention is to make a pale pink dry Rosé reminiscent of the Mourvèdre-based wines from the South of France. Those wines make you think of long lunches sitting on La Canebiere in Marseilles watching the world and his wife go by. I think we have more than achieved our homage to ‘France du Sud’ and in doing so created something uniquely our own –we use Shiraz rather than Mourvèdre
Winemaking: The ‘Morning Bride’ is a dedicated Rosé - we picked some of our Chanticleer Vineyard Shiraz early, especially to make this wine. Grapes were de-stemmed and pressed with no skin contact at all. There was a cool, temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks and once the grapes were through malolactic fermentation the wine was stabilised, filtered and then went straight to bottle.
