Description

Mr Mick’s passion for Rosé dated back to the late 1960’s when his nephew had just qualified from University at Roseworthy. Keen to impress his uncle, he produced the first Rosé under Mr Mick’s watchful eye.
Today, Mr Mick Rosé revives his intent for the wine in a way no other Australian Rose seems to do – ideal to serve with food but also great as an aperitif.
This is an alluring wine with subtle complexity of strawberry, hints of lychee and white peach.
Soft fruit lingers before a cleansing, dry finish.

Winemaking Notes

Sangiovese, Tempraillo and Grenache fruit was crushed, chilled and held cold soaking separately for 12 hours in the press in order to extract vibrant colour and red berry flavours from the skins. The juices were cold settled and fermented separately prior to careful blending, stabilisation, clarification and bottling in May 2019. Slight residual sweetness remains in order to enhance the natural fruit characters.

A blend of sangiovese, tempranillo and mataro, the pale lipstick hue pointing to protection from oxygen, a cool ferment and early bottling. A scented bouquet of rose petals, spice and musk leads into an intensely juicy palate with flavours of unripe strawberries and lemon drops.

Bright in the glass and bright to taste. This goes all right. Jellied raspberry, strawberry and preserved orange flavours. You’d say there’s some fruit sweetness helping it along but boy is it enjoyable to drink – and it cleans up well on the finish too.

Mr Mick 2019 Rosé ($17): I agree with Adams and Schutz that this is extremely gluggable. It’s made from sangiovese and tempranillo, and epitomises Mick Knappstein’s philosophy about providing drinking that is real value-for-money. Every winery seems to have a dry rosé at the moment and it’s what we should be drinking as the weather starts to warm. This is better than most.
