Bannockburn Saignee

Cracka Review

Much more European in style than most Australian Rose. Made from a 50:50 blend of young vine Pinot "bled off" skins and old vine Malbec whole bunch pressed. Both parcels fermented by indigenous yeasts and spent 12 months on lees in French oak.

A clear, bright deep salmon colour. Nose has some strawberry and cream characters also some violet aromas.

The strawberry characters carry through to the palate and fill out the mid palate beautifully before acid kicks in and wine carries with good length into a bone dry finish. Excellent food wine or just chill and drink. Perfect partner to paella.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Some salmon tinges to the colour; the low alcohol and punchy acidity define the flavour and mouthfeel of the dry palate. A cork for a rose is the ultimate defiance of the cork gods

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Subtle style; textural complexity; gentle spice and some strawberry.
