At the end of our old-vine garden path there is a Fairytale come true, our 90 year old bush vine Grenache garden at Gomersal in Nuriootpa.
After hand picking in the last week of March our winemaker Elena Brooks let the free run basket pressed juice ferment with natural indigenous yeasts in old French Oak barriques. The wine sat on yeast lees for twenty weeks before bottling without secondary fermentation, fining or filtration to capture the essence of our Fairytale.
This vintage of our Fairytale of the Barossa Rosé has a high level of natural acidity, (6.5 grams per litre) a pH of 3.05 and less than 3.4 g/L of residual sugar with an alcohol of just 13.2%. It is truly a wine of its time and place. A wish come true.
