Jilly - 2021 White Wolf of Cumbria Rose

2021 White Wolf of Cumbria Rose

Tempranillo, Shiraz
Canowindra, NSW

Wild berries jump around your mouth like bouncy balls. So fragrant and lively, this dry rose. Bright and boisterous, with a savoury side. If you like pink, or pink wine, or pink flamingos, then this is for you.

A blend of 70% Tempranillo and 30% Shiraz, all handpicked and pressed to old oak puncheons and stainless steel. Left on solids for 5 months until bottling. Unfined, unfiltered. The Temp is from Topper’s Mountain Vineyard in New England, where vines sit on deep, free-draining red volcanic soils called Krasnozems. The Shiraz component came from Emu Swamp, planted on quartz-rich, permeable soils farmed sustainably by Steve Mobbs and Nadja Wallington.
