Rogers & Rufus was first crafted In 2007 by two vignerons whose passion for wine is matched with a love for the hedonism of the summer months. When pondering over what to imbibe in one evening, it was apparent that their ice buckets lacked one vital summer ingredient…a cold, crisp, edgy Rosé & so…Rogers & Rufus was born. A professional winemaker of repute, Rogers Hill-Smith is never happier than when the shimmer of summer sun commences. The Test series looms and the blue waters of Kangaroo Island calls out his name- add a glass of Grenache Rosé, and it’s the closest thing to utopia a man can get. An entrepreneur and a visionary at heart, Rufus Clevely has always been an ideas man. His wine journey started as a successful wine merchant before revolutionising the Gastropub scene across Blighty. Nostalgic for the romance and glamour of a forgotten era, Rufus has a passion for vintage cars and is a man that truly embodies joie de vivre! With a shared appetite for the finer things in life, the two set about creating the best expression of Australian Rosé possible. Their vision around the look and palate experience sought to craft a delicious savoury, vibrant wine from the Barossa Valley showcasing the wonderful resource that is dry grown Bush Vine Grenache. The result is a pale salmon-pink wine, with a savoury rather than fruity style. Palate is delicate and properly dry. Subtle "Provencal" in style, and most importantly, eminently quaffable and memorable.
