Winemaker / Tasting Notes
The 2020 LEKO Rose is a unique and delicious rose from Australia's 2019 Young Gun of Wine Winners Damon and Jono Koerner.
65% Merlot gives all the tasty notes of red fruits, strawberries and cranberries, while 35% Chardonnay elevates the drinking experience by providing freshness and that velvety mouthfeel.
With 3 hours of skin contact from the Merlot and none from the Chardonnay, this rose is a light blush pink in color. The wine then undergoes barrel fermentation for eight weeks and further fermentation on lees for another six months, with no fining and no filtration. Expect a rose wine like no other that shows off the craftsmanship of the Koerner brothers- aromatic, spicy and textured!
