Product: This wine stands proudly within the delicious dry, savoury style rosé category. This wine was made with primary intent, rather than as an afterthought – a welcome take on this highly popular style that manages to capture one’s imagination with lightness and the clear resolution to delight. Heirloom tomatoes, burrata and jamon should add a trick to the party this is.
Region: Adelaide Hills, South Australia
Grape: Pinot Rose
Producer Information: Guthrie wines is the creation of Hugh and Sarah Guthrie, who have made a name for themselves producing wines that uncover some of the Adelaide Hills’ sites’ unseen beauty.
One of the cornerstones of Hugh’s philosophy is making the most of beautiful fruit sourced from the right places, detailing the subtle nuances of unique Adelaide Hills sites using a minimalist approach. He has done so diligently for 8 years. But the 2019 Cudlee Creek fires did throw a spanner in the works, and Hugh was not able to produce some of the cult wines that made his reputation. The bountiful 2021 vintage was a welcome reprieve from the natural and sanitary commotions of the last three years.
