Mt Franklin’s Mafic wines capture the flavour and texture of the rich volcanic flows, and the quality spring water from the base of Mount Franklin. Hand-reared vines of Dolcetto, Pinot Grigio and Nebbiolo continue a tradition of fresh, accessible European-style wines. In Piedmont, Dolcetto’s home, the name means “little sweet one.” However, wines are generally tart with loads black fruit flavours and occasionally aggressive tannins. This Mafic Dolcetto Rosé has a distinctive deep colour, a dry style with fresh aromas and flavours. it is produced with the skin contact method, the grape is pressed and the skins discarded, rather than left in contact throughout fermentation (as with red wine making). The result is complex aromas of red summer fruits and a touch of spice and a palate which is generous and savoury with firm natural acidity.
