The Willow Bridge rosa de solana highlights the purity and vibrancy of the Tempranillo grape.
A wonderful array of fresh fruit flavour, scented spice and intense palate punch, suited to the Spring and Summer months!
Very pale pink colour, aroma of crushed raspberry, strawberry and scented rose petals.
Flavours of Turkish delight glide along the palate with the purity of forest berries, creamy and almost chalky with a light savoury finish.
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from our Cameron block which were planted in 2009.
Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight westerly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Minimal time on skins allows for a pale pink colour and less phenolic extract as juice is drained to fermenter for settling and racking.
Cold fermentation retains the fresh crushed red fruits prior to racking, filtration and early bottling.
A season in which we have had our hottest December days ever, our warmest nights since 2012 and our driest December since 2008
However despite these conditions being thought of as less than ideal, we could not be happier with the overall quality of the wines from the vintage, when all this occurred in tandem with the absence of our two nemeses, bushfires and birds! We did though experience a low yielding crop.
