2023 LE FAUVE By Charteris ROSÉ

Grenache for spice and perfume, Mourvèdre for structure and wild brambly notes with Shiraz filling the palate with plushness and fruit depth.

An aromatic explosion of Pink Rose petal, musk stick and red peppercorns sit across watermelon and  white cranberry. Subtle hints of wild thyme and bay leaf add a detailed layer of perfume like bouquet. There is sunset and wild herbs on the wind in the nose.

The entry is all florals and spice from the Grenache, with the rose petal and Turkish delight carrying through. The Grenache gives way mid palate to a crescendo of Mourvèdre driven savouriness and tannin texture finding every corner of the palate, before dropping onto a cushion of Shiraz plushness on the mid to finish. An exercise in interwoven tannin and spicy flavour taking your senses on a organoleptic journey of spiciness, dryness and silkiness all at once.

Drink over the next 2 years.

You can happily drink this wine on its own but the complexity of fruit and texture almost commands food with intensity, Classic Bouillabaisse or just the Mussels with a tomato Broth would do the trick.

Vineyard Notes
Vintage Conditions For the second year running NSW was impacted a strong La Nina weather pattern with a cooler and wetter growing season and summer than the long-term trend shows. The key phenological development stages for the vineyards across NSW were well behind usual and the result was a very nervous period in the lead up to harvest. Ripening was very slow and prolonged across the high country but this has given us some great depth of flavour combined with excellent acidity resulting in flavoursome yet vibrant wines.
Winemaker Notes
With the 2022 Rose we have expanded the blend of varieties in this wine to include Mourvèdre in addition to Grenache and Shiraz completing the picture. 35% Grenache, 35% Mourvèdre and 30% Shiraz. This is a single vineyard wine from the Hudson Vineyard just outside of Young in the Hilltops region of NSW tended by Will Snedden and Xanthe Freeman. The combination of a true continental climate with the perfect balance of diurnal heat and cool on very old granite soils brings out the best in these varieties.
Food Pairing Notes
You can happily drink this wine on its own but the depth of fruit almost commands food with intensity, Bucatini all'Amatriciana straight out of Stanley Tucci’s Searching for Italy.
