A nicely-fruited Rose from West Australian outfit, Risky Business. Made from 100% Pinot Noir from Mount Barker, and using small batch winemaking techniques, this rose is wonderfully aromatic, with lifted strawberry and raspberry notes, floral lift, and a clean and crisp finish, thanks to the mouthwatering acidity.
The cool climate vineyards of Western Australia's Mt Barker region have proven ideal for many varieties as this wine will attest to. Pinot Noir is the ideal choice for this dry rose because of it's light colour and natural flavour complexity. Crisp and fresh, it's a savoury dry style that will have you reaching for that second glass.
The Mt Barker grown Pinot Noir fruit has contributed good weight and mouth feel with fine and delicate fruit flavours on the mid palate. These flavours are well matched by its crisp, fresh acidity. A well balanced clean, crisp and dry Rosé. Aromas of red berries follow to flavours of strawberries and raspberries. Invigorate yourself with the freshness of this outstanding local Rosé. A great wine to serve with or without food.
Risky business brings together the vision and decades of experience of grape grower/viticulturist Rob Quenby and vintner John Waldron. We have been sourcing fruit from Western Australia (primarily Margaret River) and Victoria’s King Valley, producing small batches of fine and distinctive wines from each area. Rob Quenby, operator of Quenby Viticultural Services (QVS) gives us opportunity to pre-select the best parcels from these great vineyards to use in the Risky Business range. Our focus is controlling quality thru vineyard selection (often single vineyard) and sustainable vineyard management. We currently produce wines with volumes as tiny as 150 cases, with some varieties up to a modest production of 1,500 cases. Sales in Australia, China and Taiwan.

NICK BUTLER - THE REAL REVIEW
Mauve rather than pink colour. Wild mushrooms and white strawberries - compelling nose. Extremely austere, demanding style, shy on fruit charm and long on acidity. Looking for charcuterie
