2019 Jimmy's Hat Rose
There are many colourful characters who are part of the Patritti story. One such individual was Cristiano Bissacca, affectionately known as Jimmy, who worked and lived at the winery back in the early days. When the Patritti kids were running around the winery getting up to mischief, Jimmy had a way of dealing with them. He would take off his old wide brimmed hat and fling it at them with deadly accuracy - you certainly didn't want to get hit by Jimmy's Hat.
Years later, while working on a new wine blend and reminiscing about Jimmy, a glass slid across the table on its own, right before our eyes. Was this a sign from Jimmy?...approving of the new blend? We think so!
A different take on our favourite Adelaide Hills three variety hat trick blend, this is a very pale salmon pink rose. This wine smells like summer with notes of strawberries and cream. The palate is fresh and crisp like biting into a green apple with an abundance of apple, strawberry, citrus and pear lingering through the long finish.
