Distributor Note:


54% Grenache, 18% Cinsault, 28% Mataro. In spite of the relentless proliferation of rosé on the market, Peter Schell's wine - now into its second decade of production - keeps coming up, well, roses. The fruit comes from a range of dry grown Barossa vineyards, "mainly bush vines, all hand-picked--old school," chuckles Pete. In short, sites selected for their ability to produce outstanding quality rosé material (the average age of vines is 65 years old although the oldest parcels range up to 120 years of age). Grapes are hand-picked and crushed bunches were macerated for between 6 - 24 hours prior to pressing before the wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured on lees prior to bottling. Approximately 10% was matured in old French oak puncheons, the rest in tank. 

Bottled without filtration, the resulting wine offers the kind of vibrant perfume (of red fruit, nectarine and white flower), texture and crunchy line that were once the exclusive domaine of Provençal rosé. Pulpy fruit, crunchy raciness and a thirst slaking finish--it proves yet again that the Barossa really is a great rosé (not to mention white wine) area in waiting.

Details

Peter Schell and Magali Gely have had a home in the Barossa Valley for over twenty years and hold a strong commitment to and passion for the Barossa.  They also have a strong French connection, both physically and philosophically.

Magali's family, who up until recently were vignerons with a long lineage in Lunel, near Montpellier, still live in south west France, and  over the last ten years Peter has worked six French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy. Time spent in the south of France has fuelled their interest in making unique, hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of the varieties and their provenance.



Grapes are sourced from a group of dedicated growers in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, taking advantage of the great diversity of the soils and meso-climates of the Barossa to create wines with balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity.
