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.
This Sangiovese Rosé has a gorgeous hint of spice, tangy fruit and the mineral-rich Heathcote soils where the grapes are grown. It’s not too sweet, as many roses can be, but has dryness and a light acidity that is refreshing and that works perfectly with all sorts of food.
