"Hand-picked fruit from the Malakoff Estate. Matured for 16 months in French oak. Authentically pale in colour, the bouquet offers aromas of cherry, floral perfume, liquorice and woody spice. A just medium-weight palate, quite supple in texture although edged with fine, savoury tannin, the flavours mostly in a slightly tart red berry vein, persisting through the finish." 94pts - Steve Creber - Wine Companion

Adam is passionate about a low intervention approach to winemaking “I guide the grapes from the vineyard to the bottle and let the grapes do all the hard work. Kinda wanted it fresh and approachable” His intuitive winemaking style focuses around minimal intervention – with little or no additions throughout the process, the grapes are handled gently, with wild ferments, no filtration or fining. Organic practices are used for all winemaking, but SubRosa is not certified organic.
