Whistler Dry as a Bone Barossa Valley Rosé 2021 (6 bottles)Regular price $179.94 Sale price $167.94
Very pale pastel pink in colour, with aromas of fresh raspberries, cherries and strawberry yogurt. The palate is dry, but has great fruit weight and great length. There is some complexity on the palate from the barrel fermentation, and some nice softness from the lees stirring. The perfect drink for a sunny day!
The juice was pressed away from the skins within 4hrs of harvest to ensure that the colour of the rose was not too dark. 20% of this wine was fermented in old French oak puncheons (500L barrels) for complexity, while the remainder was fermented in a stainless steel tank to retain freshness. Both components were lees stirred to produce a creamy character in the wine, which also helps to soften the acid and make the mouthfeel more rounded.
