Tempranillo / Heathcote / Victoria
A pure Tempranillo wine by one of Australia's most passionate protagonists of the style. A native of arid Italianate climes, Tempranillo achieves complete ripeness in the ferrous soils of Heathcote. Challenging Terra rosas and moderate seasons reduce vine vigor to yield limited parcels of intensely flavoured fruit. The talented team at Roses & Tar share a passion for the torrid Spanish varietals, closely managing their Heathcote sites to yield the finest possible Tempranillo. Match with spicy pork and fennel sausages.

Shiraz / / Victoria
Winemaker Don Lewis adores the tannins, structure and electrifying expressions of Spanish wine. Fruit for Tar & Roses is harvested off elite Heathcote vineyards, much of which must be hand picked, all components are treated separately throughout ferments and ageing. The larger volume of Shiraz comes from richer Cambrian soils, while the smaller parcel is grown to much tougher gravelly, grantic soils. The first component makes a rounder, fuller fruit driven wine with intense chocolate and earth characters, the latter contributes elegance and restraint.

Grenache Cari├▒ena Shiraz CabernetSauv / Priorato Spain / Spain
A complex assembly of Grenache and Carine├▒a grown to the Denominacio d'origen Priorato, espoused by an equally stirring addition of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Priorat is a long forgotten winegrowing area, highly salubrious in its time, it was ravaged by phyloxera and abandoned in the nineteenth century. The rocky, steeply sloped, mineralite soils have been rediscovered by Don Lewis and Narelle King, who take time out from their operations in Victoria once a year to vinify the parched and precious fruit of Merum Priorati.

Riesling intrigues Lewis for ts excellence as a grape, it transforms into the most beguiling wine.

Lewis aims to retain these sublime complexities through to the finished wine.

Shiraz / Heathcote / Victoria
A firm backbone of Shiraz from the Cambrian soils of Heathcote, embellished by a smaller component from the temperate climes of Nagambie Lakes. Heathcote dictates a rounder, fuller, fruit driven wine, Nagambie contributes elegance and restraint. A portion of Strathbogie Cabernet tempers the intensity, a dash of Tempranillo adds complexity, balance and structure.

Sangiovese / Heathcote / Victoria
Sangiovese is a thin skinned grape, known for its savouryness and earthy characters as opposed to ripe berry fruit flavours. It shows an attractive red colour and can be characterised by high levels of tannin supported by ripe acidity. Sangiovese vines are well suited to soils with good drainage and abundant sunshine, both of which are found aplenty at Heathcote. The red wine of choice to accompany veal, prosciutto and sage or piquant chorizo recipes.
