The beautifully undulating Pizzini property lies at the heart of the agriculturally rich and diverse King Valley. The site was transitioned from tobacco farming to viticulture in the late 1970s and has since become synonymous with the highest quality wines. Rosato wines are made from red grapes with a minimal controlled contact on skins. Traditionally, old world winemakers would wake at dawn to begin picking fruit, by noon, the grapes had been crushed and juices treated to maceration on skins. The red hued batches would be drained after twelve hours of exposure, right around midnight, thus Rosato came to be referred to as vino della notte, the wine of the night.
Vibrant cherry lipstick. Bouquet is lively, lifted berry fruit and jam with hints of rose petal, violet and confectionary. A palate of bright berry fruit, lingering cranberry and strawberry characters, a full flavoured pink wine offering a powerful mid palate with crisp acidity and a persistent finish. Enjoy whilst young and chilled alongside duck salad or garlic prawns.
