Strange Love 2019 — Rosé
Strange Love Rosé is a curious blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Karridale, and a touch of White Grenache from the Swan Valley. It might seem strange to make rosé from Chardonnay but we believe there's a natural synergy between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that's worth exploring - and we loved the results.
We chose Chardonnay for its fresh citrus fruit notes and lightness, and for the a solid foundation to build upon. Pinot Noir brought colour, notes of berry fruits, a soft perfume and a savoury edge; while the Grenache imparted distinctive notes of cherry liqueur and fruit, and gave the wine a rich texture.
Dusty rose petals, orange blossom and wet stone rise from this delicate wine, with flavours of gentle, raw summer berries, a twist of citrus and a dash of savoury herbs. Silky and soft in the middle, and then balanced with a fine mineral dust acidity to give a crisp, clean finish.
