Graciano Rose

2021 Rosé

Barossa, SA

A rare variety in the Barossa, the perfumed mulberry, musk and spice notes of Graciano make for a dry and mouth-watering Rose.

From $25.00 per bottle

    Description

    A rare red variety in the Barossa, our Rosé crafted from the Spanish varietal Graciano, was born from a twist of fate. A neighbouring grower was left high and dry for a home for his Graciano, after his corporate supply contract was cancelled just days before it was due for picking. We took it in more as a favour at the time, but discovered it to be a fascinating varietal.

    Its skin colour is extremely concentrated and it has naturally high tannin, making it challenging to craft a lightly coloured Rosé from. Its natural acidity however and alluring Mulberry and musk notes compelled us to treat it gently, to craft a salmon-hued, dry and mouth-watering wine.
