(Free Pink Tumbler) Famille Perrin ‘Nature’ Cotes du Rhone Organic Rose + De Bortoli ‘Down The Lane’ Gris de Gris Rose
Famille Perrin ‘Nature’ Cotes du Rhone Organic Rose
Certified Ecocert, Perrin Nature is both an ‘organic’ Cotes-du-Rhone and a great wine. Stemming from our experience in organic farming (Beaucastel was one of the first major French estates to turn to organic farming 40 years ago), this wine is delicious with notes of fresh fruit. This wine is produced from our vineyard Le Grand Prebois in Orange.
Certified ‘AB’ (Agriculture Biologique) organic grapes
De Bortoli Down The Lane Rose showcase a very pale colour. Buttery brioche aromas with some wild cherry. Textural, creamy and fine with a crystalline structure. This Rose goes beautifully with fish tacos and other seafood.
Gris de Gris or Grey from Grey is the term used to make a white/Rose wine from red coloured grapes. Pinot Grigio is a ‘grey’ variety as the fruit appears red but the juice is white. The juice is left on skins for half a day to extract the lovely colour and flavour for this wine.

De Bortoli ‘Down The Lane’ Gris de Gris Rose:
The De Bortoli family story is one of determination and triumph that started 90 years ago in war-torn Europe and is now told, generations later, across Australia. Starting with Vittorio and Giuseppina De Bortoli, their history encompasses the universal story of immigrants making good in an adopted land through hard work, innovation and the support of family and friends. From humble beginnings making small amounts of dry table wine, mostly for fellow European immigrants, De Bortoli Wines expanded and consolidated under the direction of Vittorio and Giuseppina’s energetic son Deen and his wife Emeri.
Their four children – Darren, Leanne, Kevin and Victor – joined the family business and developed De Bortoli’s reputation for premium wine, firstly through iconic dessert wine Noble One and then via the success of the cool climate wines produced at the family’s Yarra Valley Estate. Today, as a fourth generation contemplates entering the family business, De Bortoli Wine’s official motto, ‘Semper ad Majora’ (Always striving for better) and the unofficial one (good food, good wine and good friends) remain as true and central as ever.
