Using two classic Provençal rosé grape varieties, Mourvèdre and Cinsault sourced from mature Darling bush-vines, lends the 2017 Marvelous Pink a definite sense of gravitas.
Both components were fermented in neutral 500L barrels, the perfect vessels for enhancing the complexity of the wine whilst respecting varietal character.
On the eye, Marvelous Rosé has a subtle burnished copper appearance.
Aromas of rock-melon and nectarine are balanced by a delicate saline note, keeping the nose fresh and vibrant.
The palate also, is a balancing act between primary flavours of nectarines and fresh raspberries and more complex leesy characters which provide the wine with savoury texture and delicious length.
Whilst this is a wine to be enjoyed in the flush of its youth, it will certainly develop beautifully for a further 5 years from the date of vintage.
