Spring Seed Morning Bride Rosé has a nose of strawberries and watermelon rind with a hint of ginger, the palate tastes of refreshing red fruits.
Serve chilled as an aperitif or with a variety of foods such as cheese, a crab salad or the traditional caramelised onion tart from the south of France, pissaladière.
Our intention is to make a pale pink dry Rosé reminiscent of the Mourvèdre-based wines from the South of France. Those wines make you think of long lunches sitting on La Canebiere in Marseilles watching the world and his wife go by. I think we have more than achieved our homage to ‘France du Sud’ and in doing so created something uniquely our own –we use Shiraz rather than Mourvèdre Spring Seed Wines are made from grapes lovingly grown in our family’s organic vineyard, located in the premium wine region of McLaren Vale, South Australia.
The vineyard was established in the early 1970’s by Peter and Anthea Bosworth, and is now owned and run by their son Joch, who began the conversion to organic viticulture in 1995. The vines are fully certified ‘A’ grade organic by Australian Certified Organic, a process that takes four years and involves yearly audits and random sampling of produce.
The Spring Seed Wine labels are unashamedly inspired by vintage flower seed packets created at the turn of the last century. The colour, clarity and beauty of the original seed packets are quite remarkable. We chose three different flower images to adorn each one of our McLaren Vale wines, simply because they are quite lovely. The Aster Pinot Noir has the Aster (Callistephus chinensis), Foxglove (Digitalis pupurea) and Hollyhocks (Alcea rosea) labels.
