What the Experts Say

The two maestros of Barossa Rosato are Mark Bulman and Pete Schell. Maybe they should make one together one year? Imagine! This is Mataro, Grenache and Cinsault.

Blush colour. Soft and powdery with a redcurrant and tangerine sort of flavour, plus a slight earthiness, spice and floral things. It’s glossy and fine at once, just the right amount of flavour, and a gentle herb laced finish of fine length and grip. Delightful.

94/100 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front


Our Notes


Winemakers Comments

Made from old Barossa Valley Grenache (52%) Mataro (30%) Shiraz (16%), and Cinsault (2%) .  The range of source vineyards is broad, varying in age from 20 to 90 years of age,  (averaging  50 years) grown mainly in sand and loamy sand soils, with lesser proportions from loam over clay and deep red clays. Mainly bush vines, hand-picked, dry grown or grown with minimal irrigation – low input, old school viticulture – respectful of the vine and soil.

Chilled over-night, bunches are crushed and macerated prior to pressing and the lightly clarified juice fermented with both indigenous and cultured yeasts – almost exclusively in stainless steel – 5 %  was fermented in old French oak demi muids.   All parcels were matured on lees for 2 months prior to blending.  2021 Rose – bottled in late May, is one of our earliest Rose bottlings – the mild and extended growing season delivered rose wines of delicacy and great freshness – qualities deserving of  and best captured by an early bottling.

About the Winemaker
Despite the prickly name, the work of winemakers Peter Schell and Magali Gely (kiwi-raised, Magali of French background) is eager to please - hearty and honest. Single-vineyard, for the most part, basket-pressed and wild-fermented for a rustic French-inspired approach, and a wide variety of planted varietals all shown at their best.

"Have received my second order now and love getting the wines each month. I get both the red and white. Not being a big red wine drinker before I am now converted after getting these testers."
