Vineyard Notes

The Leone Rosato is a blend of three varieties from our Rowland Flat vineyard. Predominately from vines planted in 2005 with the Shiraz portion from vines planted in 1995. All vines are on sandy soils and single wire trellis.

Winemaking Notes 

Deliberately picked early with moderate sweetness levels to ensure bright fresh flavours. Skin contact to impart phenolic texture and colour is part of this dry style of wine, which also adds a savoury element. Fermented in stainless steel and old oak, we have selected a yeast noted for enhancing mouthfeel. 

Bottle size: 750ml

Chilled, enjoy with family and friends, for pizza night or casual barbeques.

Cellaring

A fresh wine style, best consumed when young.
