ABOUT THE WINE
Born into a grape-growing family, Don Lewis spent 32 years working for the Mitchelton winery in Heathcote, where he forged an enduring partnership with Narelle King. In 2004 Don left Mitchelton to work as a consultant, most notably in Priorat, Spain. His time in Europe cultivated his fascination with the wines of Italy and Spain, and in 2006 he and Narelle set up Tar and Roses in order to show how these varietals could be grown in the diverse terroirs of Central Victoria.

TASTING NOTES
Eponymous tar and rose flavours on this bold Aussie expression of this Piedmontese grape. Black liquorice, leather and olive tapenade add a savoury character, with bright cherry and cranberry fruit.

FOOD PAIRING
Beef oxtail, New Zealand Rack of Lamb with mint sauce and beef ragu pasta with tomato sauce. 

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Australian growers are increasingly willing to experiment with new varietals from southern Europe, with Tar and Roses at the forefront of this new wave in winemaking.
