Appearance: Clear and bright straw green.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Appearance: Clear and bright straw green. Nose: Fresh and clean revealing a straw-like bouquet building into an array of stone fruits, jasmine and hints of nougat. Palate: Intense and well balanced revealing white peach, cashew and subtle spice notes that lead to a clean mineral finish. Integrated French oak and controlled lees contact adds a further level of depth. The full flavoured and long palate has interesting grain and texture.
Vineyard Notes
Rosily vineyard is planted on a gentle hill sloping down to a tributary of the Willyabrup brook, which flows in the winter months. The soil types on the property vary from deep gravelly loams, to coarse gravels, to lighter sandy soils over a clay base. This soil diversity (in conjunction with Margaret River’s climate and our north facing aspect) gives Rosily Vineyard the ability to produce vastly different styles of wine, all from within the 80 acre site. The most elevated portion of the block has some gravel. This was specifically identified as being ideally suited for the chardonnay vines in the initial stages of planting.
