Dominique Portet Fontaine Rose 2020

THE FRENCH BACKGROUND OF THIS YARRA VALLEY PRODUCER SHOWS THROUGH IN THIS FRAGRANT, ELEGANT ROSE. VERY PROVENCAL!

"The blend 50% Merlot, 40% Shiraz and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. We picked the fruit by hand before gently crushing and pressing it. We fermented it in stainless steel tanks for essential freshness and to accentuate its attractive aromas. We stirred the lees regularly to give the wine a soft texture and to add creamy complexity.

The wine is a pretty, light salmon pink in colour. It shows floral perfume and sweet, pretty red fruits on the nose, as well as a slight pepperiness. Merlot and Shiraz combine to give the palate a spicy red-berry intensity, while the Cabernet adds a suggestion of blackberries. It has a gentle, creamy mouthfeel, and fine natural acidity draws out the palate to a pleasing, aromatic finish."Dominique Portet
