Unveiling Our Maiden Vintage: Manley Grenache Rosé 2024

At Manley Wine Estate, we are thrilled to introduce the first vintage of our Grenache Rosé 2024, a wine that embodies our commitment to quality, innovation, and the unique terroir of our vineyards. This maiden release marks a significant milestone for us, reflecting the dedication and passion that have gone into every step of its creation.

The Journey Begins: Planting the Vines

The journey of our Grenache Rosé began in September 2021 when we planted the Grenache vines on Ruimte farm. This location was carefully chosen for its optimal growing conditions, allowing the vines to thrive and produce grapes of exceptional quality. Over the next two years, our team meticulously nurtured these vines, ensuring they developed the character and complexity needed for our envisioned Rosé.

Harvest and Creation: From Vine to Wine

Fast forward to February 2024, when the first harvest of our Grenache grapes took place. The excitement in the air was palpable as we carefully handpicked the grapes, each cluster reflecting the care and attention given to the vines over the past two years. The grapes were then pressed directly and fermented in stainless steel tanks, a process that preserved the fresh and vibrant character of the fruit.

A Symphony of Flavours: Tasting Notes

The result is the captivating Manley Grenache Rosé 2024, a wine that surprises and delights with its intriguing aromatics and bright palate. On the nose, you’ll discover a mesmerising mix of dragon fruit, lavender, plum, strawberry, and savoury notes, with hints of shale and prune adding depth and complexity. The palate is equally enchanting, offering flavours of raspberry, pomegranate, and fresh cranberries that dance on your taste buds, creating a lively and refreshing experience.

Perfect Pairings: Enjoying Our Rosé

This Grenache Rosé is not only a testament to the hard work and passion of our team but also a versatile companion to a variety of dishes. It pairs beautifully with fresh salads, tapas, grilled fish, and other Mediterranean cuisine, making it an ideal choice for casual get-togethers or elegant dinners. Its bright and fresh profile ensures it will be a favourite for many occasions, bringing joy and sophistication to any meal.
