2022 Fairbank Rosé


Winner of Best Rosé in Australia
97 Points in Halliday's Wine Companion
Gold Medal - Queensland Royal Wine Show

The 2022 Fairbank Rose continues our long tradition of producing eminently drinkable rose wines from our estate grown fruit. Consistent in style with recent offerings the wine showcases vibrant salmon pink/onion skin colour and prominent red fruits (apple and strawberries) lifted musky aromatics and fresh palates that the wine is known for.

Whole bunch pressed with the pressings cut fine and fermented separately. Cold settled juices were racked with fluffy grape solids to tank to start fermentation. Once a strong fermentation was established the parcels were transferred to old French barriques to proceed to dryness. To preserve fruit vibrancy the parcels were racked, blended to tank once dry and sulphured to inhibit Malolactic fermentation. A light finning was followed by stabilisation and filtration before bottling in early December 2022.
