"Expansive, full of flavour and textural, this is yet another exciting release of the estate Rosé. Red apples, raspberry, lemony acidity and oodles of exotic market spices." 94 Points. Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion
"Expansive, full of flavour and textural, this is yet another exciting release of the estate rosé. Red apples, raspberry, lemony acidity and oodles of exotic market spices. Finer and more precise than the 2020 release, in line with the cool year that birthed it." 94 Points. Erin Larkin, Halliday Wine Companion
A mild spring at the start of the growing season, lead into to a dry early summer providing ideal growing conditions. The challenge of several summer rainfall events later in the season was managed with great care by the viticultural team, where their attention to detail resulted in fruit that produced expressive, flavourful wines.
The 2021 Deep Woods Estate Rosé is produced solely from Margaret River fruit and made to sit alongside the very best wines from Deep Woods Estate. The aim was to make a contemporary style of rosé; nuanced and delicate, yet full-flavoured.
Tempranillo and Shiraz were sourced from vineyards in the Yallingup Hills and slow, carefully managed ferments allowed for a Rosé of great character and expression. The wine was also blended with a small portion of hand-picked, barrel-fermented Vermentino for texture and complexity.
Pale salmon pink in colour with intensely floral aromas, perfumed with vibrant ripe strawberries. On the palate, wild strawberries are matched by a smooth, creamy mouthfeel with a savoury edge. The wine builds through the mid-palate with vibrant acidity and a dry finish.
