|Style||Savoury Our Souls
The original Save Our Souls offering, and still a winner - a muscular saignée rosé with a gorgeous deep brassy colour and a bright fruit-forward flavour to match.
Mouthwatering, almost tangy, acidity, with plenty of apricot, raspberry and rockmelon. Mostly Sangiovese, a little Pinot Noir.
From The Winemaker
Sangiovese from the Upton Hill in the Strathbogie Ranges. Pinot Noir and Sangiovese from the Yarra Valley
Bright, savoury and oh so refreshing. Summer berries, musk & rose petals.
At 450m above sea-level, Upton Hill has a commanding southerly view of the Goulburn Valley. The combination of the altitude and prevailing southerly winds provides for cool-climate grown fruit. The Sangiovese was harvested quite late in the season, April. It was brought directly into the winery and pressed off to tank, racked then fermented. Following primary fermentation, Malolactic conversion occurred which softened the naturally high acid, providing a soft but full mid-palate.
A small portion of the blend is also made up of a Saignee of the Yarra Valley fruit that went into our Sangiovese. This was vinified separately in a few barrels. Added to this was a wee bit of Pinot Noir Rosé from the Yarra. All completed through Malo lactic fermentation and only a limited amount of SO2 was added at completion.
About the Winery
Unpretentious producers Save Our Souls source fruit from all over Victoria for their young, easy-drinking minimal-intervention wines in characteristic cross-marked bottles. Founders Jason & BIll (surnames omitted from any promotional content, that'd be too uptight!) met in 2008 and began the brand with a vibrant Rosé, a recent vintage of which we've featured this month.
