Iron Gate Estate Hunter Valley Rosé Cabernets 2023 (6 Bottles) Pokolbin, NSW

$198.00 GST Included


The 2022 version of our Rosé is stylistically the same as previous vintages. This vintage’s version is predominantly a combination of early picked Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Bright pink-salmon in the glass, the bouquet presents scents of cranberry, redcurrant and tea rose.

The refined palate is elegant with red berry-like flavours, good fruit weight and a cleansing and slightly dry finish. Serve this wine slightly chilled (10-12 deg, C) to enjoy its attributes.



About Iron Gate Estate

Iron Gate Estate was founded by Roger Lilliott when he purchased the land, on which Iron Gate Estate now stands, as a paddock in 1996. He planted Semillon, Verdelho and Shiraz vines the same year. Chardonnay vines were planted a year later, and more Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon the year after that.

The first vintage was in 2000 while the Mediterranean inspired cellar door and tasting area were under construction. The impressive cellar door opened in September, 2001, with imported terracotta roof and floor tiles from Spain, hand-painted tiles in the courtyard and bar by John Cliff of Newcastle University and a pair of magnificent gates, from which the Estate bears its name, made by world renowned blacksmith, Paul Simpson, from Queensland.

In 2017, Roger handed over the reins of his family business to another family-owned business, Kuokai Investment Company. A well-respected award winning winemaker, Geoff Broadfield, came on board as a consultant for the 2018 vintage in Janurary, and in December 2018 , accepted the position as Iron Gate Estate’s Head winemaker to join the new venture with The Kuokai Family.

“Our aim is to build on the bedrock of what Roger created since 2001,” says Gavin Kuo, General Manager of Iron Gate Estate. “We will respect his legacy and build on the quality and consistency of the wines and fruit produced from our vineyard. “Every Winemaker puts their own stamp on the wines produced, and Geoff’s understanding of our Hunter Valley region with 42 years of winemaking experience under his belt, has taken the wine quality to a whole new level. These wines, crafted with skill, passion and commitment, have proven to be winners with our customers and club members alike.”

The high level of service, friendliness and wine knowledge provided by our staff along with our beautiful Cellar Door has to be experienced, and we look forward to welcoming you on your next visit.
