Old vineyards eclipse the property and a 1940s planting of Grenache is the backbone of this rosé, with Shiraz added for extra complexity. After specifically harvesting whilst fresh and vibrant, the grapes were wild fermented and partially barrel matured for added complexity. Anna ‘Rosina’, together with her husband Karl Heinrich ‘Eduard’ Kalleske farmed our vineyard from 1853 until the 1880s. They were pioneers on our property and in the district of Greenock. This wine pays tribute to their accomplishments. Rosina is a genuine hand-made wine that’s been grown, vintaged and matured on our Kalleske estate
Rosina 2017 is vivid watermelon-pink in colour. Bursting from the glass are lifted aromatics of musk, perfume, rose petals, strawberries and jasmine. It is extremely inviting and attractive. The juicy palate oozes freshness with zesty berry fruits harmonised with a touch of creaminess. There is well-balanced faint natural grape sweetness adding mouthfeel and generosity which is then framed by light subtle acidity. This is a radiant and flavoursome rosé that is completed by a lengthy finish of bright fruits. Enjoy now.
