2020 Trusty Rusty Rose
This year our Chief Winemaker Richard chose a special patch of older Mourvèdre from the Kalimna end of the Barossa Valley.
In previous vintages we have made Trusty Rusty with Grenache, so it was very exiting that the grapes were hard to resist eating off the vines and those flavours have found their way nicely into this special bottling.
A light strawberry hue in the glass
An interesting bouquet of fresh meats, cedar, cherry, dried herbs, cinnamon, peppermint, musk and orange chocolates
The palate is lean with great mid plate drive, this fleshes out along the mouth and give great bounce, fruit and a soft minerality.. This is a real surprise as the wine is wound up like a sling shot and then it just lets fly, the perfect wine for a cheese platter on a summers days. Open and pour away, it will be a magic disappearing act
