LUX VENIT roughly translates to “the light has come.” Rosé from old vine Barossa Valley Grenache and Mourvèdre done seriously: Wild ferment, maturation in French oak barrels for 3 months.
Chaffey Bros. Wine Co., LUX VENIT, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Barossa Valley, 2020
Medium salmon hue. Lifted red fruits: strawberry and raspberry with a dash of peach cream and savoury spice. Profound and serious palate, rich with the aforementioned red fruits, yet retaining lightness and energy through the long dry finish.
Rating: 18.5/20 (93/100)
