Port Phillip Estate Salasso Rose 2013

Port Phillip Estate Salasso Rosé 2014

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13%
Port Phillip Estate 'Salasso' Rosé has established itself as one of Australia's leading examples of Rosé. This wine is made from fruit from 15 year old Shiraz vines by master winemaker Sandro Mosele. 'Salasso' is Italian for "bleeding the juice" and can be translated to mean Rosé.

The newly released 2014 Port Phillip Estate 'Salasso' Rosé is a balanced, poised, savoury wine that carries a load more class than your average Aussie Rosé.

Review of the 2013 vintage included below;

"94 Points. The fruit is whole-bunch pressed and barrel-fermented without yeast inoculation in a mix of old French oak and concrete tanks; once dry, the wine is left 'sur lie' for several months prior to bottling. Salmon-pink; bone dry and very savoury, this has to be the most food-friendly rose on the market - capable of matching virtually any dish, it is not just a cheerful rose for casual gulping. 13.5% alc." - James Halliday, Wine Companion Magazine, February/ March 2014.
