AoB Small Batch Graciano & Rose Intro
Introducing 2017 Artisans of Barossa Small Batch Rose
100% Mataro from an elevated site in the Northern Barossa parish of Ebenezer that produces low yields of frgrant savoury fruit. Barossa Rosé is great balance between refreshment, texture and varietal red fruit expression - and old vine Mataro is brilliant for producing the dry, savoury Rosé wines that this region is renowned for. The wine is pale salmon in colour, with lifted aromatics of red currant fruits and a slight savoury undertone. Great balance of the key components with a rounded mid-palate and refreshing finish
