Low Sulfite Wild Yeast Matured in old barrels Grown, vinified and bottled at “Rosnay” The aim is to produce a complex, earthy red, akin to a pinot, using wild yeast and ageing in very old barrels, some as old as 20 years. selectively hand picked just before the big rains of the 2017 vintage, the grapes were chilled in the cool room before crushing and gentle, slow open fermentation in small half tonne vats with no acidification, no added yeast and twice daily hand submersion of the cap. After 95% of fermentation was complete the wine was pressed off the skins directly into very old 300 litre oak hogsheads where it matured for 8 months prior to racking and bottling without fining or filtration. The wine is light to medium bodied, with fine tannins and rustic, earthy structure overlaid with savoury fruit flavours of raspberry and sour cherry. Complex, rustic, natural.

New French Oak Premium fruit Malolactic Fermentation Lees contact Fruit is selected parcels of Chardonnay and Semillon picked at the optimum possible ripeness for full fruit flavour but also natural acidity. The wine is aged in new French oak with lots of lees contact (stirring) and malolactic (secondary) fermentation. It has superior structure and texture compared with whites made in tank, but without being too “old school” and heavy. This wine was mainly produced for restaurants and is a celebration of our grandmother Dolly. Vintage: 2015 Sulfites: <15ppm Free Alcohol: 13% Blend: Chardonnay 50%, Semillon 50%
Low Sulfite Classic medium bodied Chardonnay Lightly oaked Vegan Friendly Grown on upper slopes of deep red volcanic clay, Chardonnay is one of the best suited varieties to the Cowra region and is very versatile in wine style. This wine was made from quite well ripened fruit, giving it a medium body with plenty of white peach flavours, and partial malolactic fermentation to give it cremy acid balance. Vintage: 2015 Sulfites: <20ppm Free Alcohol: 13% Blend: Chardonnay (100%)
New French Oak Premium fruit Malolactic Fermentation Big tannin Rosnay’s biggest, boldest red, the result of a high percentage of high tannin pressings matured in 600 litre new french oak and 300 litre old french oak. This wine was mainly produced for restaurants and is a celebration of our great-grandfather Alberic Dulong de Rosnay.

Classic Dry White Bottle age Balance Medium bodied Vegan Friendly The bottle age on this wine gives it depth and balance, with the green-picked semillon in particular ageing beautifully with minerality to balance the developing ripe Chardonnay fruit flavours. Co-fermented in stainless steel with no oak maturation or malolactic fermentation for a clean style. Cowra Single Vineyard Wine Show 2017, Bronze Medal, showing that Cowra Chardonnay and Semillon develops very well with some bottle age, Winestate Best Value Buys, August 2018, noted this wine as “warm and developed, with lots of caramel and butterscotch characters on both the nose and the palate with a tight acid finish”.
