2023 Great Western Rose
Colour: Pale pink with medium intensity.
Bouquet: Intense primary red fruits, cherry and strawberry with a hint of rose petal.
Palate: A palate that aligns with the nose – red cherries and crushed strawberries coupled with musk stick and bubblegum. This is a vibrant wine with refreshing primary fruit notes and good natural acidity making it a crisp easy-drinking wine.
Cellaring: Drink fresh on release.
Pairing: Fresh Seafood, light salads, light pasta and creamy cheese like brie.
Vintage: 2023 began with a very wet spring. Rain and cool temperatures were the theme up until Christmas. Into the new year the rain ceased and some warmer weather followed. The 2023 vintaeg was long and late with the grapes being harvested in late March. This long cool vintage allowed fruit flavours to mature, while the natural acidity was retained.
