The beauty of producing rosé is that the variations on this winemaking theme go well beyond a wine that sits somewhere between shades of white and red. This particular version, for example, sits at the delicate tipping point into pink – at the palest, lightest-brushstroke end of blush – and bears virtually no relation whatsoever to the rosés that continue to dominate Australian wine shops. Spiced and herbal, provincial and musky, savoury, light and lifted. This is the perfect girls’ weekend in the making, provided the girls have tickets to head to Bandol on the Côte d’Azur.
100% Pinot Noir saignée. Old French barrels. Five months on lees.
