Made from Australia’s only planting of Rondinella grapes, which originate in the Valpolicella region of Italy.
Made using the classic saignée method, draining the juice after a short time in contact with the grape skins, this palest pink, spicy rosé displays a dry creamy palate with refreshing minerality balanced by soft tannins.
Ornithologists would recognise the colour of FREEMAN Rondo Rosé 2020 as matching the eye of a partridge, a bright salmony pink complementing the beguiling berry and lime blossom aromas, characteristic spice and refreshing, lingering palate. This wine is a delicious aperitif – serve chilled with briny, freshly shucked oysters because the soft tannins harmonise with the metallic zinc of these molluscs. The style also matches well with antipasto, crab linguini or grilled salmon. Or chill and sip as the sun goes down.
