2015 Rosé

“Rose-aye”

History

The Dromana Estate is our Premium range and was created to showcase the high quality of fruit grown on our vines. 50% off the wine used in our Dromana Estate Rosé is from Heathcote, known for their warmer climate the fruit from Heathcote is fuller bodied.

Rosé is a typically a delicate and fresh wine which incorporates some of the colour from the skins but not enough to qualify it as a Red wine. The longer the fruit has in contact with the skin the darker the wine will be.

Wine Making

Produced in the traditional saignée method, which means “to bleed,” it describes a method of rosé winemaking that involves “bleeding” off a portion of red wine juice after it’s been in contact with the skins and seeds.

The Dromana Estate Rosé is composed from 50% Heathcote Shiraz & 50% Mornington Pinot Noir grapes. Saignée is a unique style of rosé wine because it is often bolder and darker in colour than any other rosé wine. So, if you’re not a fan of traditional rosé, give this one a go!
