More Information

The wine that put Dominique Porter on the Australian wine map and producer of the Yarra Valley's best known Rose. Always a dry style and for most vintages Shiraz and Merlot dominant.

"50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Shiraz. Clear bottles are not really ideal for wine, though I get that with rosé you need to display the goods. The press releases says this was released in September 2020, which is quite a feat!A little cream over white cherry, with some fennel and blood orange. Juicy, slightly savoury, the blood orange with chalky texture and a little tang, and a gently perfumed finish of good length. Excellent wine." 93pts - Gary Walsh - Wine Front

Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley

Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
