Pig in the House Organic Rosé 2017


The Australian Organic Market Report (2017) states that organic wine consumption has increased steadily over the past five years with the number of consumers said to have purchased organic wine increasing from 13% (2012) to 20% (2016). Some good numbers there in anyone's lingo.

Jason O'Dea, owner of Pig in the House with wife Rebecca, has noticed  this increase too with the demand for Rosé.



This is the first Rosé release made from Sangiovese and a drop of Shiraz. A small portion was fermented in older oak to build complexity and texture.

A quick whiff and a taste and I like the textural appeal here.

Sour cherry, watermelon and strawberries and cream are the main players. It moves at an even tempo from gate to post. Some delicious savoury feels play in the back with textural interest through the mid palate. Tapas for this please.

Drink now.
