Rosa Purbrick, formerly a Dal Farra before marriage is married to Tahbilk owner and chief winemaker Alister Purbrick. The Dalfarras range is named after Rosa who is a well-known artists living on the banks of the Goulburn River in Central Victoria at Tahbilk Winery. Rosa transcribes images with paint on canvas, ink on paper, hands on clay – many of these compositions are translated onto wine labels for the Dalfarras range of wines – dedicated to Rosa’s heritage and maiden name – Dal Farra.
This wine was crafted from 100% Pinot Grigio grapes, sourced from vineyards in the King Valley and the Goulburn Valley. Grapes were picked and crushed during the cool of night to retain their fresh, varietal flavours. The juice was then divided into select parcels. Each parcel underwent a different treatment such as malolactic fermentation; fermentation and time with French oak; or spending an extended period on yeast lees. Each treatment resulted in an individually flavoured parcel of wine, and the unique character and personality of the final blend is a result of the special handling of these separate parcels.
This 2016 Pinot Grigio reflects the Italian style – light, fresh and floral with vibrant stone-fruits and a touch of spice.
