Gilbert Rouge is an exciting cool climate Australian blend of Shiraz, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot, Barbera, Pinot & Tempranillo from New South Wales. A medium-bodied red with supple, soft bramble fruit flavours.

Gilbert Family Wines have their roots in the Eden Valley of South Australia, where Joseph Gilbert was one of the first to plant grapes. They still make delicious Rieslings there under the Gilbert + Gilbert label. Now, however, the majority of their wines come from the fashionable regions of Orange and Mudgee in New South Wales. Simon Gilbert established the winery in 2004 after working for more than two decades as winemaker for some of the top producers in the area. Simon and his son, Will, specialise in cool climate wines  with a common thread of  elegance, purity and structure This winery is right at the front of Australia's new wave, making a wide range of wines which balance traditional styles and techniques with the more experimental.

This wine sees 6 different parcels of 6 different grape varieties blended together harmoniously.

The Shiraz, Sangiovese and Barbera, which make up the bulk of the blend, come from Mudgee. They contribute richness and roundess due to the warmer climate, while the Petit Verdot, Pinot Noir and Tempranillo bring more elegant and refined qualities. All the parcels were harvested separately and underwent a cold soak of three days to bring out the bright fruit qualities desired. Fermentation was undertaken both naturally as well as with Tuscan yeast cultures. The wine was matured for 3 months in a mix of old oak and stainless steel.

Grape: 54% Shiraz, 22% Sangiovese, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Barbera, 6% Pinot Noir, 4% Tempranillo

Tasting Note: A delicious soft, aromatic red with wild bramble fruit, a twist of black pepper and lovely freshness that draws you back to the glass for another sip.

Food Match: A versatile red that can be enjoyed lightly chilled, or with a grilled lamb chops and barbecued peppers.

Closure: Screwcap
