What an extraordinary rose! A blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Pinot Meunier, all sustainably souced from blocks in the Barossa Valley.
Juicy, complex, and oh so different to your pale pink Provence rose! You could be forgiven of thinking this was a ‘light red’ given its extraordinary colour. Very interesting - dried goji berries, rosehip syrup, blood orange and damson coulis. Lots of red apple crunch on the palate, with mouthwatering acidity and a savoury stemmy finish. A rose that could stand up to a whole host of dishes!!
Geyer Wine Co is headed up by Dave Geyer in the Barossa Valley. In an ode to heritage, but with eyes always looking to the future, Dave finds, revives and nurtures some of the neglected vineyards of the region to produce honest, hand crafted wines, often from unsung and unfashionable grape varieties. Keen to avoid all synthetic chemicals and to be in touch with the fruit at all stages from the vine to the bottle, he farms his vineyard parcels sustainably, gently coaxing the fruit from grape to bottle in the cellar with minimal handling, to best highlight regional and cultivar identity. These wines are unlikely to be like anything you will have ever tasted from the Barossa before, with their stereotypical high alcohol big reds, Dave prides himself on producing wines with fantastic concentration, whilst still maintaining moderate alcohol levels and fine acidity. With the Barossa's long hot days, picking early, and a great deal of care in the cellar are key.
