Dominique Portet Fontaine Rosé has long been rated as one of Australia's leading examples of Rosé and the 2021 vintage is sure to please the many fans of this wine. This latest release is produced from a blend 50% Merlot, 40% Shiraz and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, with all grapes picked by hand before gently crushing and pressing it.
The 2021 Dominique Portet Fontaine Rosé is a typically pretty, light salmon pink in colour. It shows floral perfume and sweet, pretty red fruits on the nose, as well as a slight pepperiness. Merlot and Shiraz combine to give the palate a spicy red-berry intensity, while the Cabernet provides a hint blackberries. It has a gentle, creamy mouthfeel and fine natural acidity draws out the palate to a pleasing, aromatic finish.
Dominique Portet’s French lineage dates back to 1720 and the family’s sale of eaux de vie to the Martell family. Several generations later his father André Portet became régisseur (vineyard and winery manager) of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac.
