APPELLATION Yarra Valley
Mt Duneed Estate Rose’
Region: 100% Yarra Valley.
Winemaking: The Merlot grapes were hand harvested and upon arrival at the winery were whole bunch pressed to ensure minimal colour pick up. Fermented in stainless steel at low temperature has enhanced the bright, red fruit characters of the wine. Bottled young to capture its perfume and freshness.
The cooler conditions during the ripening months of January and February 2020 meant our Merlot grapes could develop slowly on the vine and retain their acidity. The 2020 Rose has plenty of fresh red berry fruit with a hint of violets on the nose. The palate is textural with hints of prosciutto and strawberries and cream. An intriguing wine.
Occasion: Don’t keep Rose for summer as this wine is the perfect year rounder! The wine will easily move from red curry prawns seared on the barbeque to spaghetti and meatballs.
