PLACE

Clare Valley.

Kilikanoon wines are masterfully composed from diverse vineyard sites and sub-regions, delivering an elegant and approachable style.

VINTAGE

This year, our Rosé was made as a cuveé of two old grenache vineyards, one adjacent the old Watervale Hotel and the other, a vineyard in Leasingham that was planted in 1944.

Both vineyards are planted on deep loam over limestone soils that tend to produce larger berries with higher juice to skin ratios, producing perfect fruit to create a crisp, dry and flavoursome Rosé.

WINEMAKING

Both vineyards were harvested a little earlier than normal for Grenache, to achieve a savoury, cherry, almost chalky flavour spectrum. This, coupled with crisp natural acidity and an off-dry finish, has a created a refreshing and youthful Rosé. Both parcels were given just one hour skin contact in the press before being gently pressed off and cool fermented for three weeks.

CELLARING

Best consumed young but will develop additional complexity with 1 – 2 years in the cellar.

Storage: Keep dry and cool, avoid direct sunlight
