Michel Chapoutier is one of France's most prominent winemakers; a seventh generation member of the Chapoutier family who have been working in the famous Rhone Valley since 1808. A pioneer with an eye for innovation, Michel Chapoutier first purchased and planted vineyards in Australia in 1997, with a focus on the Heathcote and Pyrenees regions of Victoria.

An appealing pale salmon in colour, this dry style of Rosé is aromatic, fresh and vibrant wine with subtle pomegranates and raspberries fruit flavours. Refreshing and beautifully balanced, this is a versatile and super enjoyable drink that's the perfect go-to Rosé over the warmer months.

Winemaker Michel Chapoutier is the seventh generation family member to lead Maison Chapoutier, first established in France in 1808. In 1997, with a natural curiosity and an eye for innovation, he first purchased and planted vineyards in Australia. Challenged to create great Shiraz, true to its unique terroir yet reminiscent of its French origins, Michel's Victorian vineyards were carefully selected for their superior aspects and the characteristics that their soils impart to the ultimate wine.
Central Victoria
A southern extension of the Great Dividing Range, the Victorian Pyrenees foothills create a remarkable diversity of microclimates and ancient soils and exposures, resulting in low cropping vines ideal for intensely flavoured wines. A tribute to Michel Chapoutier's daughter Mathilda and the unofficial Australian national anthem 'Waltzing Mathilda', this dry rose made from 100% Grenache is a revelation of sensory delights.

Vintage: The 2018 vintage was cool, with a longer ripening period than previous years. The grapes were ready for harvest in March, 4 weeks later than last year. This longer ripening has allowed the development of primary fruit while retaining freshness.

Tasting Notes: Pale salmon in colour, this dry rose exhibits aromas of English candy and is made in the traditional Rose de Provence style. This wine is fresh with vibrant fruit characteristics of pomegranates and raspberries.

Food Pairing: Perfect with smoked salmon, grilled fish and other light dishes, or enjoy it on its own to fully appreciate the delicate aromas, perfect as an aperitif
