Gone are the days of Lambrusco being a cheap, simple, sweet fizzy wine. David has turned it completely on its head and created this delicious dry, still Rosé. Picked from a sustainably farmed vineyard in Uraidla, 516m above sea level, the fruit was destemmed and then pressed after only an hour of skin contact. Barrel fermented in a single 10 year old Barrique this wine has masses of red apple, raspberries, vanilla and tart, refreshing acidity. No added SO2. Minuscule quantities available, so get in quick.
Architect by day, winemaker by night, David Caporaletti is calculated and precise as much as he is rogue and experimental in his winemaking. Having made wine fo the last few year, David shows mind-boggling intuition with his 'less-is-more' mantra. With fruit sourced from the Adelaide Hills and Wrattonbully, AOW wines show restraint in all the right places - both in skin contact time, use of oak and extraction of tannin. Another great reason why The Hills is proving to be a breeding ground for young winemakers with access to great fruit, sensibility and a taste for adventure in their craft. - Distributor Note
