VINTAGE 2022

The cool Adelaide Hills region has become renown for producing fine, elegant wines. This wine was sourced from Charleston. We have been adventurous with this wine. The grapes ripened slowly and, at the sugar level at which we decided to pick, had developed quite a pink/grey tinge (hence the name, Pinot Gris). We gave the grapes 24 hours of contact with its skins primarily to enhance the palate weight, but in doing so, extracted colour We fined the pressings and blended them back into the free run. Cool fermentation of 2/3 of the wine was complemented with 1/3 fermented in older oak.

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.
