Chardonnay, wooded

Oak plays an important but subtle role in this Chardonnay with the varietal characters enhanced by an array of winemaking techniques to ensure complexity. 

As a young wine it displays a rich amalgam of melon, fig and citrus fruit, finely balanced with vanillin oak. There are hints of butterscotch and roasted nuts from malolactic fermentation and barrel maturation. Bottle ageing is rewarded with increased richness and peaches, cream and buttered toast characters intensify.

Zibbibo

A fresh fruity style wine originating from Alexandria in Ancient Egypt, this muscat grape migrated to the island of Sardina and from there to Calabria in southern Italy, where it is know as Zibbibo. Made as a table wine, the late maturing grape has intense crisp, clean passionfruit aromas. Low in alcohol, it makes for a great summer drinking wine.

Semillon 

A grassy fresh show on the nose. Delicate citrus palate finishing long with clean acidity.

Shiraz Reserve

This late harvest wine has intense ripe nose of blackberry, blueberry and cedar, with a hint of pepper spice. Flavours are a subtle combination of these berry fruits integrated with new American oak. The soft tannin integrates well with acid and give a long finish to a wine that is beautifully balanced.

Shiraz  – 2007 Bronze Medal

Rose Creek Estate has developed a reputation for producing this consistently top-quality Shiraz. It has aromas reminiscent of ground black pepper, mulberry and raspberry through to blackberry on the riper end of the spectrum. American Oak is used to mature and increase the wine’s complexity but not to dominate its distinctive cool-climate Rose Creek Shiraz character.

Merlot  2007 Bronze Medal

The Merlot has light fruity flavours similar to Cabernet with a smooth and supple character and lite tannin.

Cabernet Franc 

Cabernet franc is not often made as a straight varietal. The small quantity of fruit has been matured in a small American oak barrel concentrating the flavours with a great length and depth resulting from maturation in a small oak barrel  this wine is in limited supply and in great demand.
