Artist Series Rosé

The Rosé label was designed in partnership with the Helpmann Academy when the opportunity was presented to an emerging young artist to have their artwork on the label of our new Portia Valley Grenache Rosé.


A pale colour, with a balance between fresh strawberry and zesty lime, it is very much based on the style that matches with an Australian Summer.

100% Grenache Rosé, The fruit was hand selected by our Winemaker and specially selected for our Grenache Rosé. The quality of Grenache grape was pivotal, as it had to preserve a full intensity and complexity of flavours while containing the dryness and delicacy of structure the wine now has.

After harvesting in the cool of night, the free run juice was drained once the colour and flavour was deemed right by the winemaker. Raspberry and strawberry aromas were sought after with a light attractive pink rose colour also the aim. Careful reductive handling was employed to ensure that the juice was not oxidised and freshness was maintained. Cold settling of the juice at 1oC for a week ensured a crystal clear juice was admitted to fermentation. Different yeast strains were used to add complexity to the wine and to build additional mouthfeel and to add fruitiness. The wine has been held in temperature controlled vessels throughout its life at 10-12oC to maintain freshness and avoid premature aging.
