Winery: Cobaw Ridge
Region: Macedon Ranges - Victoria
Winemaker: Alan Cooper
Varietal(s): 100% Syrah/Shiraz
The Il Pinko Rosé is made from 100% biodynamically farmed Syrah, grown on the picturesque Cobaw Ridge estate vineyard. The cool-climate of the Macedon Ranges produces Syrah of elegance and spice. When turned into a Rosé you get a wine of quiet complexity and detail.
This is fermented in terracotta qvevri (Georgian amphora) and old French oak barrels, left on lees and bottled with a touch of sulphur.
It's an enchanting Rosé, superbly balanced and delicious to drink. A little richer and a touch more fruit focussed than prior. Made under their normal method: very gently pressed, with no rotation, juice naturally fermented and matured utilising large old French oak and Qvevri. Full malo and zero so2 till post blending prior to bottling.
