Raspberries, cherry blossom and blackcurrants highlight the fruit driven nose. The palate is generous but balanced with soft tannins, leading to an elegantly structured black cherry finish. There is a touch of residual sugar finishing dry with lingering acidity. This wine will be enjoyed with alfresco meals, including trout or salmon, and especially with a delicately spiced antipasto.
The Bethany Rose was sourced from forty year old Cabernet Franc vines grown on the gentle slopes in front of the Bethany winery, nestled at the base of the Barossa Ranges. The vineyard benefits from the cooling gully breezes during the warm months of summer, moderating ripening over an extended period of time.
