Mount William Jorja Alexis Pinot Rose 2003
Murray and Adrienne Cousins’ purchase in 1985 of a 220 hectare property situated between Lancefield and Kilmore on the Great Dividing Range saw the humble beginnings of Mt William winery. Situated on the northeast slopes of Mt William at an altitude of 605 metres the original plantings continue to provide fruit for both still and sparkling wines of award winning distinction.
This wine celebrates the lives of Jorja and Alexis Davey who tragically died in the Kinglake fires on Saturday 7th February 2009. Salmon pink in colour, indicative of the premium Pinot Noir fruit used in the making of this sparkling Rose.This wine has spent over 5 yrs on lees maturing in the cellar. An ideal accompaniment to oysters, crayfish and poultry or any foods of a delicate nature. 750ml. 7.7 Standard drinks. 13.0% Alc/Vol. Fermented in this bottle.
Deep salmon-pink; intense spicy red fruits gain velocity on the long palate, travelling through to the finish and aftertaste. Honours the lives of Jorja and Alexis Davey who died at Kinglake on Black Saturday. Five years on yeast lees has softened the acidity since first tasted in Dec ’09. 95 Points; James Halliday
Adrienne and Murray Cousins purchased a 220-ha grazing property in 1985; the sheep and Angus cattle remain the principal part of the general farming program, but between ’87 and ’99 they established pinot noir, chardonnay, cabernet franc and merlot. The quality of the wines has been consistently good, and are sold through a stone cellar door, as well as at a number of fine wine retailers around Melbourne.
