This juicy, high-toned Rosé is a product of Tasmania's cool maritime climate and the ancient, low vigour soils of Riversdale Estate in the Coal River Valley near Hobart. It is an aromatic, fruit driven wine with a finely textured palate; eminently enjoyable on it's own or paired with our delicious regional cuisine.
Coal River Valley
Riversdale Estate is a 120ha mixed farming operation owned by husband and wife team Ian and Wendy Roberts. The property is located at Cambridge, in southern Tasmania’s renowned Coal River Valley, overlooking Pitt Water, and with the internationally significant UNESCO Ramsar wetland of Pitt Water and Orielton Lagoon a little further beyond. Nearby is the University of Tasmania’s Mount Pleasant Radio Observatory. Riversdale Estate’s 38ha vineyard was first planted to vines in 1991. Today, it produces award winning single vineyard wines in addition to select parcels of wine grapes that are sold under contract to some of Australia’s leading wine companies. In creating our own Riversdale Estate and Roaring 40s products, we look for inspiration to the great vineyards of northern Europe. Our aim is an elegant, food-friendly wine with complex aromas and flavours, satisfying texture, persistent aftertaste, and low residual sugar.
