The blend 60% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. We picked the fruit by hand before gently crushing and pressing it. We fermented it in stainless steel tanks for essential freshness and to accentuate its attractive aromas. We stirred the lees regularly to give the wine a soft texture and to add creamy complexity.


The wine is a pretty, light salmon pink in colour. It shows floral perfume and sweet, pretty red fruits on the nose, as well as a slight pepperiness. Merlot and Shiraz combine to give the palate a spicy red-berry intensity, while the Cabernet adds a suggestion of blackberries. It has a gentle, creamy mouthfeel, and fine natural acidity draws out the palate to a pleasing, aromatic finish. This is as refreshing, satisfying and moreish a rosé as you could.

Details

Ninth-generation winemaker Dominique Portet chose the cool climate of aptly named Coldstream in the Yarra Valley as home to the eponymous winery he founded in 2000.

It was the culmination of a tenacious search for grapegrowing terroir to rival that of his native Bordeaux – but also the start of a new chapter in a winemaking story that has its roots in France in the early 1700s.

Now son Ben – generation 10 – heads the winemaking team, firmly observing the central tenets of this young yet historic estate: respect for tradition, understanding of site and an open mind towards contemporary practices that shape wines that are ever more refined and delicious.
