The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2011 Intro Rose Grampians Shiraz Rose

Cellar Door

With healthy yields, we decided to bleed some juice away from the freshly picked Shiraz at Westgate Vineyard and Jallukar Ridge Vineyard while the juice was just pink, and ferment it in some old barrels as rosé. Wild yeast fermented to dryness, then left to sit on its yeast lees for 8 months before bottling. It’s a mid-weight, textural and dry rose, with strawberry, orange rind and fairy-floss aromas, spice and good weight in the mouth. Only 3 barrels, and I doubt it will last the summer!
