Ulithorne ‘EPOCH’ Rose 2018


EPOCH: a beginning of a new era

Following true to the meaning of the name, this vintage is a new era for this beautiful Rosé. It’s been a long time coming, but unlike previous vintages, this was produced at home, in The Vale.

Pale salmon in colour, this wine displays a subtle nose of rosewater and strawberries. The palate with red berries, sour cherries, and strawberries shows creaminess, crisp acid, and fine delicate tannins on the finish.


The Source

100% Grenache from McLaren Vale


The Process

Handpicked Grenache was partially crushed and then had two hours of skin contact with some whole bunches before gentle pressing. Transferred to 5-year-old French Oak barrels with some solids for a long, cool fermentation. Regular lees stirring in barrel for three months before racking, stabilisation and bottling.
