Mornington Peninsula, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13%
Port Phillip Estate 'Salasso' Rose has established itself as one of Australia's leading examples of Rose. The 2018 Port Phillip Estate Salasso Rosé has been made from Pinot Noir and Shiraz grapes grown at from Port Phillip's Mornington Peninsula vineyards.

An attractive pale salmon in hue, the nose is vibrant and lifted with notes of strawberry, orange peel and dry herb. Fresh berry flavours lend a soft yet vibrant texture to the palate, leading to a full length and a finish of red apple, talc, and driving acidity. Refreshingly moreish, this is a balanced, poised, savoury wine that carries a load more class than your average Aussie Rosé.

"94 Points. Pale, pretty, subtle red fruit and white cherry, a liquorice juiciness. It’s soft and flavoursome, gentle acidity, powdery texture, blood orange in the aftertaste. Quiet complexity. Spot on. Tasted: Oct18 Alcohol: 13% Price: $26 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2020" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

Port Phillip Estate was established in 1987 on a property of sixty acres in Red Hill in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula. The maritime climate and southerly latitude of the Mornington Peninsula combined with the estate's deep red loam soils are considered ideal for cool climate viticulture.

Displaying a delicate onion skin colour, the 2018 Salasso presents a bright perfume of mandarin, wild red berries, cinnamon and watermelon. It is seamless and energetic on the palate, offering a combination of dry, structural elements and a supple strawberry and cream texture, capped off with a fresh red berry finish.

The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts in a mix of large-format foudre and old French oak barriques. Once dry, the wine was left sur lie for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
