The Tricycle Rose is the wine that originally led us to Rusty Bike – it’s a multi-regional blend of Grenache, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mataro, beautifully aromatic, light, crisp and dry. Rusty Bike is one of The Barrel Thief’s recent discoveries – a small boutique producer located at Houghton in the picturesque Adelaide Hills.
This Rosé is a blend of Grenache from the Barossa and Shiraz from the Clare Valley. Produced using the saignée method of production; is a delightful salmon pink in colour. Beautifully aromatic, this is a light, crisp and dry blend. Sophisticated and generous on the palate, it has flavours of strawberries, tangerine peel and a light touch of pale peach.
