A vibrant pink colour, with hues of cherry red and orange. The palate starts with hints of flinty minerality, rose petals and stone fruit, leading into more obvious flavours of strawberries and cream. The structure is a balanced organization of contrasts; lively yet subtle, crisp yet soft, up front yet long, robust yet restrained, fruity yet mineral, and fun yet (a little bit) serious.Overall a unique Rose that is easy to drink yet complex and age-worthy.
After a 10-year search, winemaker Adam Richardson selected the very special terroir of his Hard Hill Road Vineyard site for the production of his Chockstone and Hard Hill Road labels. With its own special microclimate, the Hard Hill Road Vineyard’s cool ripening conditions and naturally low-yielding vines produce wines with layers of intense flavours and a velvety structure. Like many of the best wines in this historic region, A.T. Richardson wines are approachable in their youth and possess the potential to age gracefully. In A.T. Richardson Wines, you will taste the rich and enticing flavours of the Grampians and get caught up in the excitement of wine, adventure, and life.
