Ben's March Pick:

I love this wine! For me it screams to be enjoyed by the beach or on a lazy Sunday lunch but why not every lunch. Liv and Mij are some of my favourite winemakers from out of our very own Margaret River, using all organically farmed fruit. Being such a small-batch winery, their wines are forever changing and getting better with each vintage. The passion they share for winemaking and the respect for the region they are from really shines through in this delicious 2020 rosé. It jumps out of the glass with notes of watermelon, ripe-stone fruit, and a hint of spice. With that wonderfully bone-dry finish you love in a rosé and fresh fruit carried onto the palate it sure does make for a crisp and easy drinking wine!

THE REGION

Margaret River

Western Australia’s most famous wine region was established by Dr. Tom Cullity at Vasse Felix in 1967. Quickly followed by Moss Wood and Cullen. Today, Margaret River has over 150 producers on widely varying soils with the region’s best reds coming off the ironstone gravel. Within the region, areas such as the Wilyabrup Valley—a warm maritime climate—are the beating heart of Cabernet plantings. Though famous for Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Shiraz shine here too.
