Tellurian Rose 2019

Tellurian Rose 2019

Heathcote, Victoria   |    750ml   |    14%
Tellurian Wines is one of the rising stars of the Heathcote wine region, with the quality of wines continuing to impress. The fruit for the 2019 Heathcote Rosé was sourced from Tellurian's own vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years.

Made from estate grown Shiraz, grenache, nero d'avola and mourvèdre, the grapes were hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed, then the juice was fermented in seasoned French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The wine remained on yeast lees in barrel and tank with regular stirring for three months prior to bottling.

Pale salmon colour with rose hues. Fresh aromas red berry, cranberry, red currant are complimented by savoury mineral characters of flinty and struck match. Red berry fruit flavours carry onto the palate and combine with dry, savoury, soft chalky texture.

Tellurian Wines vineyard is on the western slopes of Mt Camel Range, overlooking the township of Toolleen.

The original Tellurian vineyard was planted in 2003 with 5.6 ha of shiraz vines, with a further 3.6 ha of Shiraz were planted in 2006.

The ancient 500 million year old Cambrian soils of the Toolleen area of the Heathcote region combined with viticultural practices that focus on optimising fruit quality from each vine provide the base building blocks for Tellurain wines.
