Murdoch Hill's crisp, dry rose is made from an off-the-wall blend of Cabernet and Pinot Gris. The Cabernet, sourced from Estate vineyards in Oakbank, makes up 70% of the blend and is pressed straight off skins. It takes its colour from the blend and is wild-fermented in old barrique and foudre.
This was blended with Pinot Gris from Lobethal to add texture and a fine acidity. An unusual blend for sure, but one that works nonetheless. Expect a deliciously textural and savoury rose with a wash of cherry-berry fruit, fragrant Rose water and touch of spice.
The Adelaide Hills are certainly alive - perhaps not with the sound of music - but rather, vast quantities of unique wines that circulate through the region's pristine body. This region is still a new kid on the Australian wine block - but is producing finessed cool climate classics such as Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Hipster’s will be happy in the Adelaide Hills too, with the region being home to a plethora of alternative varietals such as Blaufrankisch and Gruner Veltliner.
The Hills are chock full of cellar doors serving up the best of the region's food and wine output. The cooler climate that comes with altitude serves as an important point of difference from the warmer regions in Adelaide - tarty and acidic wines dominate over the more ripe fruit that can be found elsewhere in the State of Adelaide.
