Spring Seed Rose
As our Morning Bride is picked to be a rose (rather than an afterthought) the flavours tend to be on the green end of the flavour continuum, as we pick the grapes early. Strawberries, watermelon rind and a whiff of spice on the nose combine with wonderful acidity and a lovely dry finish. Chill and serve without delay.

We had good spring rains but lower summer rainfall than we usually receive in McLaren Vale. As a result of this dry growing period, disease pressure was low (no mildews!) although we had a couple of heat spikes in late January and some hot days in February which resulted in reduced crops compared to 2018 (down by up to 30% depending on variety). Whites were picked early in February and picking of the reds started at the beginning of March and was largely all over by the end of the month. Quality is terrific however, naturally.
