This year’s blend is a similar composition to the 2022: Grenache (84%), Cinsault (13%) and Counoise (3%). The lion’s share of the Grenache was grown on the sandy soils of the Rayner home vineyard with the balance coming from two growers, both with sites in Blewitt Springs on deep sandy soils, planted in 1975 and the mid-1990s respectively. The Cinsault and Counoise are grown on the Rayner vineyard.
In the cellar, Andre uses a variety of techniques to build complexity and texture. The Grenache from the growers, along with the Cinsault, Counoise and young-vine Grenache from the Rayner vineyard, fermented at cool temperatures to preserve bright, primary characters. Then, for weight and savoury character, the older-vine Grenache from the Rayner vineyard fermented at warm temperatures in old oak. The result is a fresh and pure rosé, with layers of flavour, lovely grip and a super clean, refreshing finish.
