TASTING NOTE
SANTA & D’SAS Rosato has been made to reflect the Sangiovese varietal expression of this wine style. A vibrant nose offers up strawberries, rose petal with a hint of spicy cinnamon. Intense flavours of sweet cherry and raspberries are intertwined with candied peel and finishes with a hint of pink peppercorn. The palate extends to a dry, textural yet balanced finish.

FOOD

REGIONS The King Valley is one of Australia’s most exciting and emerging wine regions. Home to the most picturesque and unspoilt valley in Australia, King Valley benefits from a cool climate with extremely varied terrain, that ranges from snow-capped Alps to sun baked fields. THE SEASON The 2016 growing season was basically a dry, warm vintage. Yields were moderate with strong agreement on the vibrant aromas and intense flavours in varieties. Time will define the standouts of the vintage, but the early indication is that the Rosato has great intensity of aromas and flavours complemented by a crunchy acid core. WINEMAKING The fruit for the 2016 Rosato was picked in early March at 12.0° baumé. The grapes were picked in the early morning, destemmed and then crushed to press. They were left for three hours on skins in the press to extract colour and tannin before being pressed off skins. Once in tank, fermentation with some solids at a 12.0°C ferment temperature was completed slowly over 6 weeks. This allowed retainment of fresh aromas and flavours while providing texture and mouthfeel. The wine was left on yeast lees with weekly stirring to protect the freshness of the wine and adding complexity. The wine was bottled under screw cap.
