Soul Growers was formed in 1998 by the experienced winemaker Paul Heinicke with the addition of award-winning winemaker Stuart Bourne, and quickly gathered a strong following in their domestic, Asian and North American markets. Most of their dedicated team members are 5th generation descendants from the first grape-growing families who settled in the Barossa valley. They are fortunate to work with Old Vine, Survivor, Centurion and Ancestor vines, some being over 130 years old, and their goal is to let the unique character of these vineyard sites across the Barossa valley shine through in their wines. Where nature provides, they only guide. With this in mind, they strive to make sure Soul Growers wines emphasise the regional and varietal flavours of their beloved Barossa Valley. The essence of what they strive for is to ensure a lifestyle that is good for the Soul; wine, food, family, music, mates and fun.
Soul Growers Soul Sister Rose 2018
Fresh, lively, strawberries, lifted and full of flavour – Rose at its best. Made from Cinsault in the saignee method of bleeding off the skins and then cool fermented to dryness. This wine is dedicated to the soul mates we have in our life – without them life would be very different. from 50+ year olkd vines in the Bethany Vineyard. 160 cases
“Old vine cinsaut, destemmed, cool-fermented in tank after the saignee was bled off. Bright colour; a rare beast indeed. The only 100% cinsault rose? Whatever be the answer, this is a classy wine, the red fruits zesty and taking no prisoners. Smart finish.”
