75% Sangiovese, 25% Nebbiolo
The pale onion skin colour of this Rosé with slight pink tinges gives a hint as to the savoury European style of this beautiful food friendly wine. On the nose, notes of strawberries and cream are evident as well as enticing savoury herbal characters. This wine exhibits a savoury palate of dried herbs from the Nebbiolo which gives way to flavours of ripe strawberries and cherries from the Sangiovese. A hint of almond kernel is evident on this wine’s long finish.
Winemaker Mario Marson has long advocated the potential for Heathcote to produce enticing, dry-style Rosé. The mix of these two varieties allows for the dynamic interplay between Sangiovese and Nebbiolo – a merging of sweet fruit and savoury characters provide this wine with balance and complexity.
