The Fetherston Vintners 2019 'Peony' Rosé a single vineyard wine crafted from 100% Nebbiolo from the acclaimed Malakoff Estate in the Victorian Pyrenees. Hand-picked in late March 2020, this wine was fermented wild in neutral French oak barriques. It spent 3 months on lees in barrel with regular stirring prior to release.
Pale copper in colour, this wine displays aromas of sweet white blooms, blackcurrant, sherbet, vanilla and freshly cut grass. Bone dry and elegantly structured, the palate is tight and taut with elements of white mulberry, pepper and delicate spice.

2020 Fetherston 'Peony' Rosé
'Rose made with 100% nebbiolo. Grown on the Malakoff vineyard. 170 dozen only.
It’s such an excellent style of wine. Pale copper in colour, spicy on both the nose and in the mouth, redcurrant-y but essentially savoury, perhaps even peppery. It’s lifted, lively, textural and dry. You drink it and you want to drink and eat more.'
