NASAA Certified Biodynamic

The Winemaker "Elegant and refined, but with some texture and interest. Juicy red fruits on the palate with some nervy pink grapefruit and a touch of grip. Refreshing with a vibrant, lingering finish."

Ned Goodwin MW "Hewn of fruit from an organically certified vineyard....A very bright coral, verging into rosewater territory. Watermelon, maraschino cherry and orange zest, candied and a little cloying" (2021 vintage)

Natalie MacLean "...dry, medium-bodied and elegant with sweet dark cherry, red berry, finishing savoury and smooth on the palate." (2020 vintage)

Ned Goodwin MW "Red gummy bear, rosehip, musk, hibiscus and pomegranate scents, belie a palpably dry and medium-bodied palate. Solid drinking." (2020 vintage)

Jane Faulkner “It's lightly aromatic, some red berries and spice, watermelon and rind, creamy nuances but it's the savouriness that seals the deal.”(2018 vintage)

Carolyn Evans Hammond "......all the charms of Provencal rosé—it’s bone dry, crisp, and understated—but with just a bit more power, complexity and length. The aromas suggest the most perfect strawberry-custard tart—the kind you might see in a fancy bakery. The entry is bright and mouth filling but not fruity or sweet. The wine suggests strawberries and apricots but its flavour is muted and merges with more savory nuances—toasted pastry crust, violet petals, cool clay, yogurt, red bell pepper, and more. And the texture is sleek and fluid but not glassy-smooth. There’s a bit of fine chalkiness evident on the long finish, adding yet more gratification. The best pleasures are never too easy. Quite an intriguing rosé. Score: 94" (2018 vintage)

James Button "....a delicious, fresh wine with a light touch of sweet cherry fruit, zesty acidity and vanilla and spice notes on the finish." (2017 vintage)

Australian Wine Companion "Walter Clappis has been making wine in McLaren Vale for 40 years, and over that time has won innumerable trophies and gold medals, including the prestigious George Mackey Memorial Trophy with his '09 The Hedonist Shiraz, chosen as the best wine exported from Australia that year. Daughter Kimberly and son-in-law James Cooter (both with impressive CVs) support him on the winery floor. The NASAA-certified organic and biodynamic estate plantings of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and grenache are the cornerstones of the business."

The Hedonist is a NASAA certified organic and biodynamic winery in the heart of South Australia's famous McLaren wine district. Esteemed owner Walter Clappis is Australia's only winemaker to win one of Australia's most prestigious wine awards, The Dan Murphy Trophy, three times. The Hedonist adopts a minimalistic and organic approach to winemaking, prioritising biodynamics and sustainability. The Hedonist is a multi-award winning winery.

The McLaren Vale wine region is located approximately 35 kilomters south of Adelaide. It is by far the most important wine-producing area in the Fleurieu zone and is also regarded very highly throughout Australia and the world. A wide array of grape varieties can be successfully grown here. The best wines come from very old vines, some planted more than 100 years ago. These are prized for producing low yields of extremely concentrated fruit. Shiraz leads the region's list of award-winning wines, making McLaren Vale a favorite place to grow this grape. Cabernet Sauvignon is another prominent grape variety, along with Grenache and Mourvedre, which, together with Shiraz, make up some of the most acclaimed GSM blends here. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate McLaren Vale's white grape varieties, with a plethora of other regional and international specialties such as Merlot, Zinfandel, Tempranillo, Sangiovese and Viognier also making their mark.

Rosé derives its name from the French word for pink. In Spain it is rosado and in Italy rosato. Rosé’s flavours and styles are as varied as the food it matches. Rosé predates white and red wine with ancient rosé-style wines dating back 8,000 years. The colour of a rosé can vary dramatically. A deep fuchsia pink rosé may be bone-dry, though it’s likely to be full flavoured given balance by a gentle squeeze of tannin. Tannin primarily comes from the skin of a grape – as does colour. It’s tannin that sets rosé apart from white and red wine. Almost all wine grapes have clear juice; it’s the skins that give the colour. Grenache is the most popular grape used in rosé, with its lifted confectionary aromas, juicy red fruit flavours and mild-mannered tannins creating the textbook triumvirate for rosé. The temperate Provence region of France is home to some of the world’s most accliamed rosé, perhaps naturally, given it’s widely planted with grenache and its Rhône varietals; mourvèdre, cinsault and syrah.
