The Rosily reserve range is only released in selected years, and represents the pinnacle of what we set out to achieve from our single vineyard site in the heart of the Wilyabrup wine region.
The fermentation with this wine follows traditional Bordeaux techniques using a combination of open fermenters for freshness and closed fermenters with extended skin contact for colour stability. The ferments were hand plunged to ensure only the softest tannins are extracted. The wine is unfined and essentially unfiltered only going through a coarse filter on the bottling line.
“Super vintage and probably the best Rosily wine yet released. This is a substantial wine with an imposing presence. First-class oak has been used to integrate with the fruit from this cracking year. Has a powdery dry thread through the sweeter fruit while the tannin is superbly managed. Super wine “ – 96 points Ray Jordan
“Black and red fruit, black olive and dark mint chocolate, a little cedar and bay leaf. Medium to full bodied, mouth-filling and plush, ripe dark fruit and tobacco, a soupçon of dried herb, thick gravelly tannin, and lovely long finish that mingles fruity and savoury flavour with freshness. Excellent regional Cabernet, beautifully turned out. Nice one Rosily.” – 95 Points Gary Walsh
“A beautifully composed wine from start to finish. Complexity of variety, region and oak on display, with blackcurrant, black olive, bay leaf, tobacco and cedar all in the mix. Deeply flavoured and firmly structured, it feels completely unforced and already in balance though its peak is still years away. Super impressive” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
