Very pale pink in colour, sitting well within the classic Provence “pale and dry” spectrum. The nose is sweetly perfumed with aromas of strawberries and rose petals. The palate is elegant and effortless with light berry and candied fruit drop flavours lingering long on a soft, dry finish.
La Vita is inspired by the lifestyle of those living along the beautiful Mediterranean coast, enjoying a truly stunning combination of incredible natural beauty, history culture and more than a touch of glamour.
Each wine reflects both the region and iconic wine style from where it is sourced and an ideal of the Mediterranean lifestyle –a beautiful life, lived to its fullest with passion.
Featuring a Rose and Pinot Noir from the South of France and Pinot Grigio from Veneto, Italy, the La Vita range brings together the best of two rich cultures to our Australian shores.
Sourcing: Fruit from the Gers region, in the centre of southern France provides a core of vibrant and expressive fruit with impressive depth whilst the high altitude, cool climate Aude Valley fruit provides lifted aromatics, savoury complexity and bright, fresh acidity.
Winemaking: Completely whole bunch fermented with a short maceration (a few hours) sufficient to impart colour and texture. Following a soft pressing, the juice is given a cool fermentation in stainless steel and allowed to ferment to almost complete dryness. Maturation on lees in stainless steel adds texture and malolactic fermentation is prevented to ensure vibrancy.
Vintage: As in much of Europe, 2015 was an outstanding vintage in the south of France. Winter and spring were very wet, ensuring excellent soil moisture levels before a hot, dry summer followed ensuring good growth and healthy vineyards. Finally a moderate but clear Autumn ensured steady ripening and the cool nights courtesy of the clear skies allowed the retention of freshness and natural acidity. Although yields
were a touch low, the wines are fantastic with lovely aromatics, excellent depth of flavour and vibrant acidity.

A light Verdejo with reduced alcohol content at just 9%. A great alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. Unlike most whites, Verdejo continues to improve over several years of bottle-aging, where it gains a rich texture and flavours of toasted almonds, supported by sparkly acidity.

Pale yellow in colour with green notes, clean and bright. The nose has subtle hints of apple, pear and tropical fruits accentuated by vegetable and white balsamic aromas. On the palate the wine is citrus fresh and dry. Verdejo originated in North Africa and was taken to the Rueda in about the 11th Century. It produces light, crisp, delicate dry wines that are ideal with seafood and has now spread to other regions such as ‘Valdepenas’ which literally means "Valley of Rocks" because it is located in a wide area where the Jabalón River meanders through hills bordering on the...
