Notes from the Importer: The B’Rosé is the product of the b’romance and making a Barossa rosé (b’rosé) between Dave & Koen. These two friends really love making wine together and smashing bottles all the same. Thus, this is the perfect wine for popping corks and crushing bottles, anytime of the year. The components of this wine have changed every vintage but the idea of making a delicious mélange of red and white grapes with the most ‘delicate’ of handling has remained the same. Regardless of where ‘home’ is for these grapes, chasing a fresh line of acid congruent with fresh fruit forwardness is the calling sign for ‘B’rosé.’
This vintage sees the return of Sémillon Blanc as the lead grape alongside Muscat à petits grains. Then equal parts (15%) of the following are added to give color, texture, and finesse: Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier, Riesling, and Cab Franc. The fruit was hand-harvested across five sites in South Australia. The fruit was fermented in 5-6 batches with a portion of whole berry ferments for 4-7 days prior to being pressed to stainless-steel to finish primary and malolactic fermentations. Post ML the wines were blended to tank to meld for six months on the lees and settled naturally. It was bottled without fining, filtration, and just a 38 ppm sulfur addition.
