Foster e Rocco

Foster e Rocco is the collaboration of two friends Adam Foster & Lincoln Riley who have undertaken a project to make the wines that they want to drink; approachable, accessible and above all food friendly. Having spent many years working in restaurants as sommeliers both individuals understand the role food and wine plays in uniting people through engaging their senses.

A desire to create wines that are appealing yet interesting to the modern Australian food and wine lover and a mutual respect for the versatility of both the Sangiovese grape and Rosé style helped shape the Foster e Rocco project to produce a selection of hand crafted wines.

The traditional and original expression of our Sangiovese is treated with a stay in mature French oak and held back for a further 6 months longer than the Nuovo. Exactly the same winemaking process has taken place to that of the unoaked expression and although the wines have similarities they have developed their own personalities.

Fiano is an old grape dating back to the Roman and possibly Greek days of viticulture in the hills behind Naples (Campagna). Following the success of Italian red grape varieties in Australia, Fiano is one of the Italian white varieties that is planted. As it is new to Australia, there seems to be a fair bit on experimentation in wine making with many different styles of wine being made. So it is hard to say whether there is any typicity in the Foster e Rocco Fiano.

What must be said is that it is a damn good drink! It tastes like it is unwooded but does see a small proportion of new oak for a short period. The beautiful freshness is due to the tangy acid. It makes the wine look so alive. This wine is certainly gluggable!

Four vintages in and really finding the groove stylistically, very similar treatment in the winery as in the past few vintages with a mixture of parcels some being farmed off to old oak others being left in tank and a lot of lees work for texture. Natural ferments on the Rosé are commonly seeing super long fermentation periods of around 115 days and the wine has struck a chord of balance between textured mid palate yet supported by linear acidity. All in all producing the ‘house style’ we set out to make of a wine that is subtle in colour, highly fragrant and textural yet still dry and refreshing.
