FLEET - SYRAH ROSE 2021
This thirst-quenchingly dry rosé from Fleet is summer in a glass. Bright and floral with a salivating tail of acidity. It’s hard to believe how quickly a glass evaporates!
‘Dusty pale pink colour, aromas of fresh strawberry, red currants, hint of herbal spice. Palate is fine and savoury, a little textural, with a dry crisp finish.’
ORIGIN South Gippsland, Victoria
PAIRING Prosciutto and melon
Lisa and Justin Jenkins have a clear, dynamic idea of what makes an alluring wine, loaded with charisma. With 30+ years of combined hospitality experience at some of Melbourne’s iconic wine bars and restaurants, they’ve tasted some of the world’s best wines. With this in mind, they’ve turned their hands to winemaking. At the core of their wines are flavour, texture and enjoyment.
In 2016, the couple returned to South Gippsland where Justin grew up, to make wine. The name ‘Fleet Wines’ is born from the couple’s openness to sourcing grapes from further afield. Working with tiny amounts, these wines are celebrated for being of the moment and limited in their release.
Each Fleet Wine speaks of both place and variety. Each wine captures a fleeting moment in time, made by two intrinsic wine and food pros chasing flavour and vibrancy.
With a glass of Fleet in hand, and friends by your side, you can only enjoy yourself!
