We like our rosé fresh and lively - which is why it’s based on Sangiovese... famed for its crisp acidity and bright aromas and flavours. Floozie will no doubt make for a happier human race – or at least for a few select members who partake of this wine!
Sangiovese is a grape that has a lot going for it. However, if you really want to make this wine ‘sing’ it needs a little touching up with something else and in this vintage, that is a splash of Grenache and Sauvignon Blanc.
Our 2014 vintage of 'The Ratbag' Merlot has escaped! The new vintage 'Ratbag' displays plum characters supported by threads of rosemary and thyme. Add the perfume of the 2014 vintage and the famed ripe cherry notes and you have an alluring wine.
James Halliday - "Bright crimson-purple; this opens with attractive dark fruits, then does a right-hand turn on the back-palate and finish as tannins clench their fists. 5 or so years in the cellar should result in a wine for the fruit."
