LA ZONA Rosato 2018
Our La Zona Rosato is a blend from across the Mediterranean of three renowned grapes varieties; Italy’s savoury sangiovese and velvety barbera and Spain’s noble tempranillo, all of which are grown in our Whitfield, King Valley vineyard to make this delightfully refreshing rosé style wine
COLOUR: Pale pink with a slight salmon hint.
AROMA: Strawberry aromas with hints of watermelon and spice.
PALATE: Silky front palate with a clean fruit profile, bright acidity and good flavour persistence.
“Sangiovese, barbera and tempranillo grapes are harvested for our Rosato. The fruit is picked early to capture the young flavours, crisp natural acidity and low alcohol before being crushed and soaked cold on the skins until the juice has extracted enough colour before being pressed and settled. The clarified juice is then fermented cool in stainless steel to preserve fruit flavours before being fined, filtered, and bottled.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Ideal to sip alongside an antipasti selection or grilled figs and proscuitto.
