Naked Racer Rosé by Zonzo Estate Winery in the Yarra Valley.
This European style of Rosé has a lovely spicy nose intertwined with plums and rhubarb. Rose perfume and subtle background cardamon aids in this fresh profile. This freshness is supported by barrel and partial malolactic fermentation both of which provides weight and savoury characters. Great length and fresh detailed persistence.
This rosé has been made by blending lightly pressed merlot and shiraz. The fruit was pressed to tank and settle overnight. Three days later settled juice was racked, inoculated with yeast and fermented in old French barrels.
