Save our Souls Rosé 2021 13.5% 750ml

Save our Souls Rosé 2021 13.5% 750ml

The Sangiovese was harvested quite late in the season, April. It was brought directly to the winery and pressed off to tank, racked then fermented. Following primary fermentation, Malolactic Conversion occurred to soften the naturally high acid and provided a soft and full-mid palate.

Expert Review:
Mike Bennie- 90 points, Light and fresh, delicate and pure feeling and a little yeasty savouriness and textural chew for good measure. Rose water, mixed red berries, all very light in perfume and flavour, watery in a way but also pleasingly fresh with that comment in mind too. A lot of charm in its slender, bright frame. Nice

Many years ago when Jason Searle was helping out at Bass Phillip he came across Bill Downie. Bill and Jason realised that they shared some common ideals for wine. A friendship was then forged during viticulture studies , a passion for wine with definition of place and interest was often the bonding agent. After vintage in Italy Jason returned to keep working on a part-time basis in vineyards while Bill's star was on the rise making a name for himself as one of Australia's brightest young winemakers. Firstly at De Bortoli and then creating the William Downie wines, all this whilst spending the majority of the year in Burgundy. As Jason began to put some ideas in place to start making wine, Bill, now back in Australia, put forward the idea of making them together. Save Our Souls was born. The intention was to make affordable wine that was removed from the shadows of typical ‘New World' wine making practices.
