'AUDACITY' Rosé 2021
At Woodstock we believe that life is best lived being daring with a degree of audaciousness. Risks are for taking, and fears for conquering. Our 2018 ‘Audacity’ Rosé is a blend of Grenache/Mourvèdre/Shiraz and Vermentino from selected South Australian vineyards. We hope this wine inspires you to get up and embrace life.
The 2021 vintage exhibited superb ripening conditions throughout late February and March, including minimal rainfall, warm sunny days and cool evenings. While warm days and sunny conditions allowed optimal flavour development to occur in our reds, cool evenings helped retain natural acid which is an important feature in this wine style. The main building block in this wine is early picked Langhorne Creek Vermentino, providing crisp acidity. 25% ripe Grenache gives the wine fruit lift on the nose as well as softness and body on the palate. A small amount of Shiraz and Mataro were also included to enhance the flavour profile, contribute structure and adjust colour in the final blend. All varieties were processed and fermented separately with the final blend occurring in the lab.
Pale salmon with a hot pink hue, the 2021 Audacity Rosé expresses aromas of ripe Pink Lady apple, lemon sorbet and strawberry daquiri. The palate is crisp and lively, with the smallest amount of sweetness being perfectly balanced with natural acidity, providing a refreshing and utterly more-ish finish.
Sunny platter Sundays, summer festivals or a day at the races.. .all you need is some Audacity Rosé!
