2020 Gathering Field Rosé
|Producer||Thousand Candles. Yarra Valley, Vic|
Thousand Candles stretches from the valley floor of the banks of the Yarra to the rolling hills hundreds of metres above sea level. 2017 Young Gun of Wine finalist and Yeasty Boys drummer – Stuart Proud tends the vineyard and makes the wines of this sprawling 1,100-acre Yarra Valley farm – a meeting place of mountains, rolling hills, bush, pasture, river-flats, creeks, and river.
A sustainable farmer with background as a viticulturist at De Bortoli in Yarra Valley – Stuart’s focus is on soils that are healthy, balanced and alive – using biological farming methods – minimal intervention in the winery provides depth, balance, complexity, and speak truthfully of where they came from. The Gathering Field Range is hand-picked from select parcels of fruit from their best blocks.
|Wine||A blend of Pinot Noir and Merlot. Fresh scents of cherries, raspberries and some light spiciness from the Merlot. Red berries and cream on the palate with a slippery mouthfeel and slight herbal spice. Handpicked, pressed to the tanks and fermented prior to ageing for 4 months in old French oak.|
|Tasting Note||Red Berry - Spice - Textural|
