Rosewood Estate The Looking Glass 2017
Rosewood Estate The Looking Glass draws inspiration from the fantastical and magical world of Alice in Wonderland. The Looking Glass is Rosewood's orchestration towards a charismatic and approachable left-bank style Bordeaux blend.
The nose opens with ripe red currant and strawberries before weaving together notes of cocoa, dried herbs and fresh earth. The palate possesses a beautiful balance of being delectably dry with a crisp acidity and velvety tannins. Fall down a rabbit hole of succulent raspberry and blackberry flavours with accompanying layers of black plum, vanilla bean and baking spice. Very approachable.
34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Franc, 8% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot. The fruit comes from the Renaceau, Blackjack and Emerald Shore vineyards.
Wild fermentation using non-select yeasts. The wine ages for 15 months in neutral French oak barrels. Bottling without fining or filtering.
