Our third release of a small quantity of Backyard Rose, this year with 100% Sangiovese. We think the subtle oak and exclusive use of Sangiovese has honed the style to where we need to be for length of flavour and savoury interest at the heart of the wine.
COLOUR: Pale salmon, tending to coral pink.
AROMA: A pleasant perfumed bouquet of Sangiovese and oak just there in the background.
PALATE: Perfectly balanced savoury flavours of fresh fruit and some potpourri. Acidity balances and holds the wine in check with that subtle oak thrumming in the background to lend some gravity and complexity.
FOOD MATCH: As an aperitif with shortbreads or mandorla dolce.
CELLARING: Drink in the next twelve months
REGION: Margaret River
The 2019 vintage was cool and quite late, a spectacular vintage for whites and rose styles.

Winemaking: Hand-picked grapes were crushed and pressed without a sulphur addition generous (low) free run cut of juice was barrel fermented in one-year old white oak and finished after six months.
