Our 2021 Montepulciano Rosé is intense and compact on the palate, dry and refreshing with a savory aftertaste that is appetising and food-friendly.
The Montepulciano is an Italian grape variety, which when grown in Eden Valley, creates a fruit driven lively palate of cherries and cranberries which gives away to a spicy aromatic finish.
Our winemaker, Jo Irvine, has carefully developed this rosé to be a luscious, crisp and dry style.
'The Interpreter' Rosé is names after our ancestor Heindrich Fiebiger, who, amongst many varied roles in the pioneering days, acted as an interpreter during public meetings when the locals petitioned the South Australian Governor to form a local council.

Our “The Interpreter” Rosè is made from a neighbouring vineyard to our property in Keyneton, part of the Eden Valley wine region. This unique variety Montepulciano is a relatively new to Australia variety which originated in Italy. Its a hardy variety which thrives in our rocky well drained soil and warm climate. Single vineyard.
We have named our wines after our ancestor Heinrich Fiebiger, and the many roles he undertook in the formative years of settlement in the region. Our “The Interpreter” Rosè is named after Heinrich’s valuable asset as translator for public meetings in those pioneering days. Our family have remained in Keyneton, part of the Eden Valley wine region for over 150 years.
The 2021 vintage was harvested on February, after conditions which provided a classic Montepulciano growing season. A wet winter was followed by a mild spring and summer which provided perfect ripening for our fruit.
Our winemaker Jo Irvine is renowned for her skills in making Montepulciano. Her finesse and skill in making our Rosè ensures it is clean and pure in flavour, with the right acid balance.
Long and intense citrus flavours that are clean and refreshing are combined with rose petal and orange blossom aromas. This wine is made in a crisp, dry style to be enjoyed now or aged and savoured in the future.
Asian food is matched perfectly with the acidity and lime flavours of Rosè. Our favourite match is with the fresh and vibrant flavours from Vietnamese cuisine.
