"High quality rose.' 96 Points - James Halliday
'51% mataro, 38% grenache, 11% cinsaut, part destemmed and crushed, part crushed bunches, wild-fermented, 8 months on lees in old French oak. Brighter colour and different blend percentages to its sibling, the heady aromas of a field of wild and cultivated flowers in spring on a cloudless spring day, lead into red berries skipping along the palate before a bone dry finish. High quality rose.' 96 Points - James Halliday
'Luxe is selected from only those (rosé) parcels that have particular aromatic and textural complexity - we are drawn to sections that display what we call secondary fruit - fresh and dried flowers, herbs, spice, minerality, white and green tea-like aromatics - rather than primary fruit - fresh berry fruits etc.' Peter Schell, Winemaker
Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
