Personality: Expressive, focused, savory rosé that drinks well no matter the season.

Vineyard: Budvin and Whisson Lake, both situated on the edge of the Piccadilly Valley, Adelaide Hills, facing Carey Gully. Steep slopes of loamy/gravelly clay over schist Hills soils. Whisson Lake is one of the Hill’s highest vineyards (over 600m ALS at the top). The Cinsault grapes come from Wayne Ahrens’ certified biodynamic vineyards in the Barossa Valley.

Making of: Grapes were chilled, destemmed and macerated for a day or so then pressed directly to old French barrels for natural fermentation and subsequent aging on lees. Racked in January 2021, lightly sulfured (20ppm) and stored in tank refrigerated until bottling in mid-February, unfined and unfiltered. Hand waxed.

Winemaker's Note: The 2020 Voix des Raisins is a rare “free upgrade” opportunity. “The Whisson Lake fruit is usually reserved for my top Pinot Noirs – Noir and Parachute – but with Covid closing sales channels and 2019 still to be sold, the decision was made to use them to make Rosé instead. This is damn expensive Rosé fruit!”
