Wine Profile
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 lower portion of the block, which is situated in the north east corner, has some darker clay based earth. This was specifically identified as being ideally suited for the Merlot vines in the initial stages of planting. The 2016 vintage was harvested at just under 2 tonnes / acre.
