Rogers and Rufus Grenache of Barossa Rose

Grenache of Barossa Rose by Rogers and Rufus

Grenache of Barossa Rose by Rogers and Rufus
 
Established in 2007, Rogers & Rufus is the tale of two vignerons whose passion for wine is matched with a love for the frivolous summer months. When pondering what to imbibe one evening, it was apparent that their ice buckets lacked one vital summer ingredient…a cold, crisp, pale rosé and so…Rogers & Rufus was born. 

An Australian professional winemaker of great repute, Rogers Hill-Smith runs the oldest family owned winery in Australia, Yalumba. He is never happier than when that summer sun starts to shine, the Aussie test match looms and the water of Kangaroo Island is calling his name- add a glass of rosé, and it’s the closest thing to Utopia a man can get.

A British entrepreneur and a visionary at heart, Rufus Clevely has always been an ideas man. His wine journey started at well-known champagne house, Veuve Clicquot, for 19 years before revolutionising the Gastropub scene across Blighty. Nostalgic for the romance and glamour of a forgotten era, Rufus has a passion for vintage cars and is a man that truly embodies joie de vivre!

 

With a shared appetite for the finer things in life, the two set about creating the best expression of Australian rosé possible. Their experienced palates have sought out a delicious savoury vibrant wine from the Barossa Valley showcasing the wonderful resource that is dry grown Bush Vine Grenache. The result is a pale salmon-pink wine, with a savoury rather than fruity style: its palate is subtle, delicate and properly dry. Most importantly, it is eminently quaffable!

South Australia

The Barossa Valley is one of the major regions in Australia, where many of the major wine companies are based. It is believed the first vineyards were planted in the 1840s by Silesian migrants (who settled in Bethany). There followed a rapid expansion of plantations. The early styles of wines produced were heavy dry red wines and fortified wines that were popular both domestically and in Britain. After the Second World War the styles shifted to lighter table wines with production of Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Barossa Valley is home to some very well known names such as Seppelt, Wolf Blass and Penfolds as well as many smaller producers. The climate is Mediterranean with hot dry summers and cool wet winters, making it ideal for viticulture. The main wine styles: White – Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon-Chardonnay blend; Red – Shiraz (full bodied & ripe) with Old Vine Shiraz a speciality of many vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Shiraz-Grenache-Mataro blend, Cabernet-Merlot blend.

Grenache

Originates from Spain (known as Garnacha). This grape generally produces soft, velvety, high alcohol wines with sweet, ripe blackberry flavour. Old-vine versions are prized in South Australia.
