This fruit was perfectly ripe and begged to be left alone. The result is a wine with layers of aromas, flavours and complexities that will continue to evolve in bottle.
Colour is ruby to garnet. Up front aromas of strawberry, beetroot, cherry and wildflower. Notes of fresh tilled earth with hints of rustic 'old-world' charm show through in the foreground.
Availability: this wine is available exclusively through the Rockway Vineyards wine boutique.
