Express Wines Rose

Express Wines Rose

$25.00

The Rosé is made from organically grown Grenache and Mourvedré from Margaret River, hand-picked, foot stomped and left to soak before briefly before being pressed to a combination of old barriques, large format oak and stainless steel tanks. The juice undergoes wild fermentation and Malo-lactic fermentation and matures for 9 months on full lees. A dose of skin-fermented Sauvignon Blanc is thrown in the blend for added complexity.

Visually the wine is perfectly pale and slightly orange-tinged, the nose is quite neutral but the palate has the kind of savoury and slipperiness so desired in pale pink wines. It is poised, balanced and with characters of burnt orange peel and a mouthful of seawater.

Description

Express Winemakers are about producing wines that are uniquely expressive of their origins. They currently lease and manage four small vineyards in the Mount Barker and Porongurup sub-regions of Western Australia’s Great Southern. The cool climate and ancient decomposed granite soils of the Great Southern lends itself to low yielding vines producing high quality fruit, which is necessary to make expressive minimal intervention wines.

Vineyards are farmed without chemicals. We don’t irrigate our vineyards forcing the vines to send roots deep into the sub-soil. Our fruit is all hand harvested and crushed by foot, commonly employing whole bunches including the stalks. Both primary and malo-lactic fermentation occur spontaneously with native yeast and bacteria. Movement of the wine is kept to a minimum and no fining or filtration is used. These guys really make some top quality entry level wines. Great Bargains.
