$312.00 $249.60

This is a straight dozen pack of Santolin Rose 2017.

91 Points, Campbell Mattinson, James Halliday’s Wine Companion, 84% pinot noir, 16% sangiovese. “Wild-fermented in barrel. 125 dozen. Pale copper crimson. Idiosyncratic in a good way. Orange rind, cherry blossom, raspberry and spice flavours dance their way through your mouth. It’s not particularly aromatic but it’s laden with personality and flavour. Highly refreshing too.”

Adrian Santolin has hit the mark again here. This is dry and creamy and textural. Not just a simple Rosé but rather more complex with wild strawberries, a herbal lift and cranberry flavours. There’s a hint of florals here too that adds to the overall appeal. Made from Pinot Noir and Sangiovese you can see both grapes imparting their will on the final wine. Yummo! Only 5 barrels made.

About Santolin: It was the year that preparation met opportunity and in 2012, husband and wife team Adrian and Rebecca Santolin were able to step out independently to do things their way.  A relatively young duo in an age-old practice, Adrian is head winemaker while wife Rebecca manages the business and creative.

Playing on tradition, Adrian’s winemaking style is focused on minimal intervention in order to showcase the region and variety in its purest form.

“Minimal intervention makes for a complex wine with great finesse.  It makes the varietal, regional and vineyard characters of a wine stand out.”

Their ethos is to keep it simple. A great wine starts with great fruit.  Sourcing premium, high quality grapes, they do very little to them in the winery in order to maintain the unique vineyard and regional characters of each variety.

Utilising wild fermentation and kept for up to 12 months in a selection of French oak barrels, their small batch, handcrafted wines are all made from select single vineyard sites.
