2022 Konpira Maru Tears of Makoto Rosé14317
WINEMAKER: Alistair Reed & Sam Cook
REGION: Whitlands, VIC
VARIETY: Sagrantino, Dolcetto
"A nose of overripe raspberries gives way to a palate of jelly crystals and bright red plum with an aniseed tannin. An astounding compositional triumph of a wine." - Al & Sam
The name Konpira Maru has something to do with a fishing trawler and a heroin syndicate. You'd have to ask Al and Sam about that. What we do know is they're seriously good at making wine. Minimal intervention, maximum care.
