Grapes are crushed and treated to an air bag press in the protective presence of SO2. Enzyme is added and the juices cold settled over the course of a week before being racked off settled solids into fermenters and inoculated to choice yeasts. A long, cool vinification, pressings and free run are separately fermented, assembled back into the free runs for fining and cold stabilisation. Fermented to dry at less than a gram of sugar per litre, Tar & Roses is fashioned to a food friendly style of crisp fruit freshness and enhanced varietal complexity.
Pale gold hues. Lifted bouquet, overflowing with orange and quince blossom, hints of mint and thyme. An impeccably structured palate, lime cordial and apple pie, seasoned by a touch of clove, deliciously mouthfilling, lemon and lime flavours that take you all the way to a crisp, dry, lingering finish, refreshing, graceful yet substantial enough to serve alongside roast pork with the lot.

Don Lewis joined Colin Preece for Mitchelton's first vintage in 1973, and assumed the winemaker's mantle in 1974 when Preece retired

After thirty years of leadership at Mitchelton and auspicious winemaking in the Spanish region of Priorat, 150 kilometres south-west of Barcelona, Don Lewis made the decision to pursue the Tar & Roses label, a collaboration with protegee Narelle King. Lewis adores the tannins, structure and distinct expressiveness of Spanish wines. Grapes are from vines grown to elite Heathcote vineyards, much of which must be hand picked, all components are treated separately during their fermentation and maturation. The larger volume of shiraz comes from richer Cambrian soils, while the smaller parcel is grown to much tougher grantic soils.
