2020 Koonowla Rosé

2020 Koonowla
Rosé

Just west of the Auburn township, our estate vineyard is set on a southern-facing, rocky site that is perfect for nurturing cool climate fruit characters in both red and white varieties.

Our rosé is a distinctive, fresh style made from merlot that has been managed in the vineyard specifically to express amazing flavour while still retaining palate excitement and aromatic lift.

Merlot, in fact, works a treat in this style, a softer, plumper red wine grape that when picked at just the right rosé ripeness gives you great flavour with a vivacious personality, further enhanced in the winery without any oak maturation and overt winemaking influence.
