Lifted orange peel, ripe peach and musk aromas. The palate has mouth filling maraschino cherry, pink grapefruit and must with crisp acidity and a long fresh finish. With a wonderful salmon pink colour and slightly orange hue, the 2016 Nebbiolo Rosato is savoury and supper sexy. Unmistakably Nebbiolo, makes lip-smacking Rosé for grown-ups.
Formerly known as “Boat Shed” this Rosé has been one of the most unique and successful wines in its class over the last 3 years.
The 2016 Nebbiolo Rosato is sourced entirely from Longview's single-vineyard at Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked, then chilled to 10 deg C. It was then crushed, de-stemmed and the free run juice separated and fermented for this light rosé style. Bentonite fining and coarse earth filtering ensures a clear, bright pint finish.
2016 was a vintage with very good yields and amazing fruit concentration. A small selection of our vineyard is planted with the famous Rosé clone of Nebbiolo (CVT CN111) which is ideally suited to producing fantastic dry Rosé's (or Rosato in Italian).
