Winemaking Process: Crafted with meticulous care, Ulithorne Epoch Rose is a product of single vineyards located in the heart of McLaren Vale, where loam overlays limestone soils. The journey begins with hand pruning and night-time harvesting, ensuring the grapes are at their peak of ripeness. After careful sorting, the grapes undergo four hours of skin contact before being gently pressed. The juice is then cold-settled and undergoes an 18-day cool tank fermentation process. To enhance its complexity and texture, the wine is aged on lees for three months before being early bottled.

Expert Reviews (from the previous vintage):
“A delicate and elegant style (possibly not the first thing one thinks of with the region but here is compelling evidence that all things are possible). The resulting Rosé is ideal for chilling and enjoying over summer by the pool or at a picnic. Lovely flick of acidity carries the wine. There is good focus and decent length. Gentle flavours of strawberry notes and florals linger. Nicely perfumed. A drink now style and a lovely Rosé.”
- Ken Gargett, Winepilot
“Delicate and fabulously styled, the enticing bouquet shows nectarine, crunchy apple, rockmelon, and white floral aromas, leading to a finely focused palate delivering excellent fruit purity combined with textured mouthfeel and bright acidity, offering terrific drinking.”
