Express Wine Makers Rosé 2018 - Margaret River, Western Australia


The Story

Express Winemakers is led by Ryan O’Meara who’s goal is to showcase the different sub-regions around Great Southern. He farms all his vineyards organically without using synthetic chemicals and practises minimal intervention in the winery. Grapes are always hand harvested and foot stomped and fermentation starts naturally with wild yeast. His wines are fun and full of personality. Ryan is always on the lookout for new vineyards and ways he can express this beautiful region at the bottom of Western Australia.


M+ Q Notes

A might fine Rosé that seriously over delivers. The Rosé is made from organically grown Grenache and Mourvedré from Margaret River, hand-picked, foot stomped and left to soak before briefly before being pressed to a combination of old barriques, large format oak and stainless steel tanks. The juice undergoes wild fermentation and Malo-lactic fermentation and matures for 9 months on full lees. A dose of skin-fermented Sauvignon Blanc is thrown in the blend for added complexity.


Visually the wine is perfectly pale and slightly orange-tinged, the nose is quite neutral but the palate has the kind of savoury and slipperiness so desired in pale pink wines. It is poised, balanced and with characters of burnt orange peel and a mouthful of seawater.
