Award winning wines on your doorstep

-

AWARD-WINNING winery, Ros Ritchie Wines, is situated in a popular wine-growing region of Victoria yet lends its own unique variety to the wines produced year after year.

Securing high quality white and red grape varieties from several growers of a like mindset in the region, who produce fruit from low cropping vines, with smaller, more open canopies and minimal requiremen­t for water, the result is well balanced fruit with optimum flavour and ripeness.

Ros herself graduated from Roseworthy at the end of 1981 and returned home to Victoria to help establish and set up the Delatite winery where she was their winemaker for the next 25 years.

But in 2008, Ros decided to strike out on her own, establishi­ng her own enterprise and independen­t label.

Ros’ knowledge and experience has ensured Ros Ritchie Wines excels in the local and national marketplac­es.

In the recently released 2021 James Halliday Wine Companion, six of Ros’ wines did exceptiona­lly well and scored 90 points and over.

These included the Dead Man’s Hill Vineyard Gewurztram­iner 2018 with 95 points, Barwite Vineyard Riesling 2018 with 93 points, McFadden Vineyard Pinot Gris 2018, Baxendale Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017 and Baxendale Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 which all scored 92 points and their Timbertop Vineyard Merlot 2016 with 90 points

Coming in just under these with 89 points was the Aromatyk 2019, which Ros explained is an Alsatian white blend.
