Foster e Rocco is the collaboration of two friends Adam Foster & Lincoln Riley who have undertaken a project to make the wines that they want to drink; approachable, accessible and above all food friendly. Having spent many years working in restaurants as sommeliers both individuals understand the role food and wine plays in uniting people through engaging their senses.
A desire to create wines that are appealing yet interesting to the modern Australian food and wine lover and a mutual respect for the versatility of both the Sangiovese grape and Rosé style helped shape the Foster e Rocco project to produce a selection of hand crafted wines.
Nuovo is a wine that is a extremely exciting style that lets the fruit do all the talking and provides so many food matching options. Fragrant cherry and currant aromas are supported with floral, spice and fennel accents. Medium bodied palate that is multi layered, streams of varietal cherry fruit leading to dry herbal & tobacco and savoury notes that area kept in check by sprightly acid and detailed tannin.
