SubRosa wine new releases – 2021

They’re here! Our SubRosa new release wines for 2021.

2020 SubRosa Grampians Viognier

The eagerly awaited 2020 SubRosa Grampians Viognier has finally arrived! We’re thankful to those who have patiently waited for our 2020 vintage release.

We produce Viognier when the grapes are the highest quality, which is why we did not produce a vintage in 2019. We are very proud of our 2020 Grampians Viognier.

This wine is a cracker. Beautiful aromas of stone fruit with great texture and complexity. We like to serve this wine at room temperature, much like you would a good soft cheese. In our house, Viognier is the go-to wine for a Sunday roast chicken, or, thanks to the versatility of the wine, is a great pairing for heartier dishes like pork, veal and even lamb!

Drinking beautifully now – or if you can, hold on to a couple of bottles/cases and see how it evolves over time (from five to seven years), This special, Grampians Viognier is a lovely wine to watch evolve.

RRP: $30

100 cases produced.

Naturally fermented and matured for nine months in French oak. Vegan-friendly.

Limited availability – two bottles / order.

2018 SubRosa Pyrenees Nebbiolo

Jenni Port of Halliday Wine Companion describes our 2018 SubRosa Pyrenees Nebbiolo as a “pretty complex picture”. And recommends you “give it time in the cellar”. We agree, but it’s also drinking really well right now. We enjoy our 2018 Pyrenees Nebbiolo with pizza or pasta and as the weather gets warmer with friends as we BBQ.

RRP: $45

190 cases produced.

Matured for 16 months in French oak.  No fining or filtration. Vegan-friendly.

Huon Hooke describes our 2018 Nebbiolo as:

Like a pinot with tannin.

2018 SubRosa Grampians Shiraz 

Ah Grampians Shiraz. It’s why we are here. This vintage of our Grampians Shiraz is best summed up by Huon Hooke who awarded it 96 points.

Deep, rich, bright colour, with a smoky-char and earthy-ironstone shiraz nose, surprisingly complex for its years and savoury, the palate likewise supple, mellow, savoury and multi-layered. Toasty, pepper-spicy, the palate elegantly crafted and refined, with a core of fruit sweetness and finishing with lovely balance and completeness. Harmony and charm. A really superb shiraz, and great value.

RRP: $30

100 cases produced.

Naturally fermented and matured for 16 months in French oak.

Drink by 2028. No fining. Vegan-friendly.
