The Great Dividing Range stretches along the East of Australia and includes the towering sandstone pillars of the iconic Blue Mountains. These escarpments are what characterize the beauty of the Megalong Valley and gave us the inspiration for the naming of this wine.
The 'Francoise' is a serious Rose and not an afterthought. Fermented in old oak barrels for almost a year, the result is a dry, savoury wine – lightly chilled; it is the perfect companion to a long summers lunch.
Palate – this wine has a palate of roses and lemonade, but with a savoury seawater/oyster shell minerality and subtle creaminess in the background.
Food match – goes beautifully with fresh sashimi or smoked salmon, roast chicken or BBQ-ed game birds, like quail.
Cellaring potential - To drink now or in the next year or two
