LA ZONA Rosato 2021
Our La Zona Rosato is a refreshing blend of two of Italy’s most revered and renowned grape varieties; the savoury sangiovese and the noble nebbiolo, each of which are grown in our Whitfield, King Valley vineyard to make this delightful rosé-style wine.
COLOUR: Pale salmon pink.
AROMA: Strawberry and red berry aromas with a slight floral lift.
PALATE: Zesty front palate with a clean red fruit profile, bright acidity, and good flavour persistence.
“Sangiovese and nebbiolo grapes were selected for the making of our 2021 Rosato. We pick the fruit early to capture its young flavours and crisp natural acidity before tipping directly into the press to extract the lightly tinted free run juice. This juice is then settled and racked before being fermented cool in stainless steel, then matured for up to six months on lees.” Warren Proft, winemaker
Refreshing as an aperitif or delicious with a berry semifreddo served with a berry coulis and Italian amarena cherries. (Chrismont Restaurant, Summer 2021)
