Yes Way Rosé!

So the flowers have well and truly blossomed, the wintery air has gone and the festive season is literally right around the corner (Thanks Myer for reminding us with your big Christmas trees). This means it’s official, Rosé all day season is here AKA The Spring Racing Carnival… and we’re not mad about it.

With the weather warming up, we’re feeling increasingly rosier and when it comes to warm-weather drinking and Spring Racing season in Melbourne, pink is definitely the new white.

Whether your heading trackside and hosting pre drinks, or simply throwing an afternoon BBQ together with your best friends on Melbourne Cup Day with a little healthy competition betting, Rosé is the perfect (and prettiest) drop this spring racing season. We want to share with you what we’ll be drinking (Rosé this way —>)

While some race goers may think Melbourne Cup Day is a great excuse to drink like a delinquent and end up with heels in hand by the end of the day, we’re much more refined than that. This season we’ll be sipping on a cheeky ‘Delinquente Wine Co  Pretty Boy Rosato’, from Riverland, South Australia.

Grown and produced by a younger generation wine maker, this pale pink drop is  modern, with sophisticated qualities, designed for easy drinking. Produced from harvested Nero D’Avola, the famous black grape from Sicily, this pretty boy smells oh so sweet but with the “swagger of Mick Jagger” says Winemaker Greg Grigoriou. Think hints of summer berries but crisp and dry. Its fun, bright, and bubbly making it the perfect Spring Racing season drink!

Showcasing: Polperro by Even Keel 

Is there anything better than a Sunday drive to the casual and cool Mornington Peninsula with your best gal pal? Gazing at lush greenery and abundant vineyards, with a glass of vino in hand, is our kind of heaven.

Heading south of the hustle and bustle of Melbourne’s CBD in Red Hill wine country,  you’ll find amongst a tranquil landscape, Polperro Winery. The property contains a cellar door, restaurant, and a cosy place to stay the weekend. This intimate space is interiors rich, full of rustic and moody tones, creating an earthy and inviting atmosphere inspired by the Even Keel wine label, which couples perfectly a locally sourced, seasonal menu.

Even Keel Wine label and Polperro Winery owner, Sam Coverdale, has produced wines throughout Australia and internationally. His focus is on using sustainable and bio-dynamic practices and creating well-balanced wines that are easy-drinkers, with character and balance.

Sam believes that great wines are grown not made (wise words Sir!), and is passionate about creating elegant wines that continue to interest beyond the first glass, reflecting the wine region they’re made from.

Polperro Winery can be enjoyed no matter the season. During the winter months, we’ve enjoyed the cosy retreat for long lunches, a bottle of 2016 Mornington Peninsula pinot noir and the outdoor fire pits. As it heats up, we’re looking forward to balmy afternoons on the deck, a cheese board and a cheeky glass (or two) of 2016 sangiovese rosé.

This drop is made for summer drinking, a dry style with a hint of red berry fruits and rose, and a crisp refreshing finish. We suggest to pair it with a charcuterie plate, your best girlfriends, and a fine day. We recommend a Sunday drive to Polperro By Even Keel for an afternoon of vinos, quality service, gorgeous food & better company. We’ll cheers to that!
