vintage

This is the third vintage of Strawberry Fields Rosé, again sourcing Shiraz from two distinct Margaret River vineyards, both located in the north of the region and selected for their ability to ripen Shiraz early whilst achieving soft, ripe tannins. This is critical to making our balanced, flavorsome, vibrant style of rosé‚ with perfumed aromatics reminiscent of walking through a field of strawberries.

winemaking

The cold fruit was harvested in the middle of the night once the ideal flavour and acid balance was achieved. The fruit was loaded straight into the press and the juice gently separated from the skins. The pink juice was then allowed to cold settle for a few days with the clear juice then being racked to a separate tank for a cool fermentation. The wine was then stabilised and filtered only once prior to an early bottling to capture this freshness and vibrancy.
