Rouleur Cinsault + Co Rosé 2018 - McLaren Vale, South Australia


The Story

Matt East grew up in the Yarra Valley, as a son of a grape grower, so he knows both the wine industry and the Yarra Valley extensively. We first met Matt at a wine trade tasting when he was State Manager for Wirra Wirra winery in McLaren Vale, before he headed out to his own label Rouluer in 2015. Matt’s approach to his own production now is refreshing and uncomplicated. He believes in ‘not messing with the natural order’ of winemaking in keeping the winemaker inputs and additions to a minimum. The name Rouleur is a cycling term, which Matt is also passionate about, meaning a ‘consistent all-rounder’.

M+Q Notes

This juicy rosé is made from McLaren Vale fruit and is a blend of 60% Cinsault and equal parts Nero d’Avola and Bush Vine Grenache. Fermented with wild yeast and and bottled in August 2018. Lively with mouthwatering acidity and flavours of watermelon, guava and orange citrus rind. The palate is textured and complex with a hint of spice.

Food Suggestion

Poached prawns with lime aioli
