Already renowned for exceptional pinot noir and chardonnay lines, Myrtaceae Winery’s Selwyns Fault Rosé is the perfect addition to a stellar selection of cool-climate wine offerings. Myrtaceae Winery owners John and Julie Trueman are happy to take the credit for crafting a magnificently dry yet fruit-infused rosé.
However, Myrtaceae’s Selwyns Fault Rosé is named after the Selwyn fault line, which runs north/south from Frankston to Rosebud and then travels inland through to Cape Schanck, Selwyn is also their son, Glyn’s, middle name and it is Glyn who should take the credit.
Winemaker Julie explains: “Our rosé is made from crushed and de-stemmed pinot noir grapes. The wine begins fermentation within 24 hours and remains in French oak barrels for six months before bottling. This technique keeps the authenticity of the fruit.”
As the highest winery on the Mornington Peninsula, Myrtaceae Winery produces limited editions of single-vineyard wines. Julie and John have just increased their garden plantings for your enjoyment while visiting Myrtaceae’s cellar door for a warm weather chilled rosé tipple too.
Take more home to pair with seafood or strawberries. Cheers to that.
