Origin: Yarra Valley
Region: South Australia
Grape(s): Pinot Noir + Sauvignon Blanc + Gewürztraminer
Style: Medium-bodied rosé aged in stainless steel
Quiet and textural style here. Pear, redcurrant, spice, strawberry and a little fennel and earthiness. Chalk dust, saline and strewn with dried herbs and orange peel, a blood orange tang, and a savoury finish of good length. Excellent.
After completing his wine science/viticulture degree at Adelaide University, Patrick relocated to the Yarra Valley where he worked as a winemaker for Thousand Candles and made wine under his own “Patrick Sullivan” label. He is also the Australian wine buyer for renowned European wine importer Les Caves de Pyrene and the Terrior restaurant group in London. The wines Patrick produces are of nourishment and life. All reflective of wither a place or intention. Patrick and his wife Megan have recently purchased a wild property in West Gippsland where they plan to farm grapes and make life.
