Section 1819 - Grenache Rosé - 2017
Greenock, Barossa Valley
Picked early and left on skins for a short time to achieve the perfect colour, gently basket pressed to provide only 50% extraction of juice and then fermented in one concrete vessel. Turkish delight and white peach characters underpinned by a superb flinty minerality. 220 cases made.
‘Section 1819’ was the original survey name given to a 40 hectare parcel of undulating land which is now home to our beautiful vineyard.
Situated just outside the historic Barossa Valley township of Greenock and containing several hectares of very old Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Semillon vines, we’ve breathed new life into the old soil which in return, it has yielded up wines of outstanding quality.
A by-product of our biodynamic management practices has been the return to the farm of the elusive native Australian blue-banded bee, which features on our labels as a symbol of our commitment to working in harmony with nature to create fresh, vibrant wines from healthy vines.
