The Rosnay “Garage” wines are Sam’s small batch, hand made wines that are about learning and experimentation. This wine is about simplicity.

In a very cool, wet vintage, the aim was 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. The grapes were hand picked just before the big rains of February 2017, and chilled in the cool room before crushing. 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, with minimal (50 parts per million) sulfites added.

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.
