Our much anticipated 2020 Exmoor Rosé, this wine is lip-smackingy crisp in both flavour and colour. Vibrant and punchy, strawberries and cream combine with ripe watermelon and zesty pink grapefruit to delivery a lively, zippy, fruit driven Rosé. Sourced from our Boodjidup vineyard on the Xanadu estate, this is a ‘drink now’ style best enjoyed while youthful and bright.

Viticulture

Shiraz (100%)
2020
Margaret River
Average winter rainfall followed by a warm/dry spring set up an early start to the growing season. Fruit set was variable, resulting in lower yields across most varieties. The warm summer daytime temperatures combined with low yields saw harvest begin very early, at the end of January (one of our earliest ever) and all whites were harvested before the end of February. An incredible display of Marri blossom meant bird pressure was practically non-existent in the first half of vintage, and a short rain event after the white harvest offered some respite setting up the reds perfectly. Warm conditions continued throughout March, with all of the reds being harvested by the first week of April, our earliest ever harvest completion. In summary, 2020 will be remembered as an excellent vintage in Margaret River. All of the fruit for this wine was estate grown on our Boodjidup vineyard in the Wallcliffe subregion of Margaret River.

Fruit was harvested cold and gently pressed, immediately to minimise colour extraction in the juice. After settling, each batch was fermented in tank at a cool temperature using an aromatic yeast strain to preserve the primary fruit characteristics.
