Rosily Grenache Shiraz 2018 Western Australia Margaret River
One of Mike Scott’s hidden gems never seen before on the east coast.
I was given a glass just to see if it would be up to Vine’s class and i was instantly coverted.
Layers of elegant cherries,wild spices and balanced grippy yet approachable tannin!
Rosily Grenache Shiraz 2018
Rosily Other Side Of Moon Grenache Shiraz 2018 is clear and bright medium red with a crimson hue.Displays lifted spice and floral fruit characters, is light to medium bodied with a soft mouth feel and fine grain tannins. The Palate is a mix of flavours including raspberry, cherry, spice and toffee notes with subtle French oak intervention.
The intention is that the wine be enjoyed within three to five years
of the release date.
Given that Grenache isn’t traditionally grown in Margaret River we have decided to bottle this wine under
the Other Side of the Moon brand. Importantly the wine has been made in the Rosily Vineyard house
style, concentrating on elegance and pure fruit expression. It also maintains the focus of the winery to
ensure all of our wines are crafted from our single vineyard site. The Rosily team has been working with
Grenache for 20+ years as each year a small portion is blended with our Shiraz.
The Domaine Rosily Vineyard is situated on Yelverton Road in the Wilyabrup sub region of Margaret River.
The total vineyard size is 12.27 hectares. It is north facing and has east / west row orientation.
Only fruit from this property is used in the production of our wines. The wines are all made at the
winery constructed on the property in the year 2000.
Rosily Vineyard is named after Vice-Admiral Count François-Étienne de Rosily-Mesros (1748-1832),
a French Navigator and Cartographer, who was intimately involved in the ongoing French explorations
of Western Australia during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
After 8 years of focused commitment organic certification was received in 2019 for our 2018 vintage
