Wild strawberry and redcurrant flavours with fresh acidity and a fine, long structure. The wine builds through the mid palate to deliver a persistent, savoury, textural and dry finish.

The 2017 vintage (for rosé) was undoubtedly the best in Deep Woods Estate’s history. A long, cool growing season allowed for slow, measured flavour development which resulted in lower than normal alcohol levels with incredible complexity of flavour. 

This is a wine produced solely from Margaret River fruit and made to sit alongside the very best wines from the Deep Woods stable. The aim was to make a contemporary style of rosé; nuanced and delicate, yet still full-flavoured.

This wine is a blend of Tempranillo and Shiraz with a small proportion of Grenache, all largely grown in the Yallingup Hills. Small parcels of oxidative-handled Tempranillo and Shiraz were incorporated, which were fermented slowly and carefully, to produce a rosé of great character, delicacy and complexity.

91 Points - Decanter 

Tempranillo (75%) blended with Shiraz and Grenache sourced from the Yallingup Hills. This is fresh, clean and delicate, showing bright red cherry and strawberry fruit flavours that are intense and persistent, finishing long and dry.

Producer

Deep Woods Estate wines definitely stand out from the crowd, although we have struggled to source their stunning wines as they are simply rarely available to the outside world – the majority of bottles are scooped up at the cellar door or sold through their domestic mailing list. But, we tried and tried until we received a small parcel, which we are delighted to share with you all. Deep Woods Estate is now firmly fixed in our portfolio of great Australian wines and we are so thrilled to be in a position to offer an annual allocation.

Deep Woods Estate, Margaret River, Western Australia

Region

The Margaret River is situated in South Western Australia, about 200 kilometres south of Perth. This area may grow less than 5% of the country’s grapes but it produces a very significant proportion of the country’s best wine. The climate is Mediterranean, meaning that it is warm enough to make some brilliant Bordeaux blends and Cabernets, yet cool enough for elegant Chardonnays and Semillion.  Margaret River is made up of mainly smaller, boutique producers with over 215 vineyards across the region. One of our favourite producers is from this region; Stella Bella wines. We can highly recommend Suckfizzle Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon which is made from grapes from a single small vineyard in Augusta, Suckfizzle.
