Winemaking:
Following harvest, the fruit was gently pressed with the pressings being kept separate, then a portion back blended. Cool fermentation preserved the varietal intensity and finesse. The wine was prepared for bottling while young and fresh. The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Charleston area of the Adelaide Hills. This cool region is noted for producing elegant Sauvignon Blanc with distinctive varietal character while retaining elegance. The Adelaide Hills region is renown for producing outstanding Sauvignon Blanc. Richard Hamilton Wines has sourced fruit to complement its range of McLaren Vale red wines.
Background:
Roses are synonymous with the Hamilton family with rose gardens surrounding our vineyards in McLaren Vale. The Rosette series proudly celebrates the family’s long standing in the South Australian wine industry since 1837.
Vintage Conditions:
2021 was an excellent vintage to grow grapes in the Adelaide Hills. Good rainfall in early spring was followed by excellent warm, dry conditions at flowering resulting in good quick, consistent fruit set. Veraison was later than average and cool conditions during ripening led to a later harvest.
