Rosé 2020 – Black Market Deal #39308
- Crisp, dry
- McLaren Vale
This 100% grenache rosé is specifically sourced from Blewitt Springs, a highly sought after sub-region of McLaren Vale renowned for high quality fruit. Lees stirring in older french oak barrels throughout the cool fermentation brings added complexity and a depth of flavour which is a constant in every wine from this 5 red star producer. Look out for fresh herbaceous notes on the bouquet, gorgeous redcurrant and fresh strawberries over the palate, and a long, lively finish. This is the perfect match for a warm afternoon in the backyard with your nearest and dearest and will pair wonderfully with any number of seafood or chicken dishes.

McLaren Vale is a region that lives in the shadow of the hype of the Barossa. While it has played on Shiraz as its drawcard, and continues to battle (quite rightly) with the supreme power of the Barossa, perhaps the most exciting wines from this region are its old vine Grenache and Mataro (Mourvedre/Monastrell - whatever you want to call it), and its more recent foray into Spanish and Italian varietals. Both the sun's warmth and the reliable salty afternoon gully breeze make the climate closer to Mediterranean than many other Aussie regions, and some of the Fiano, Vermentino, Tempranillo and Sangiovese from here are sublime (to name only a few). Awareness, proper consideration and sense of place are key attributes to the region's success, and its recent win against urbanisation reinforces the value of the viticultural region.
