Established in 1988 by Mark Hastwell and Martin Lightfoot, Hastwell & Lightfoot is one of the leading wine companies of the McLaren Vale region. The first wine launched under the Hastwell & Lightfoot brand was the 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, the company excels in premium Cabernet Sauvignon wines as well as other varieties grown in their 40-acre vineyard. Hastwell & Lightfoot also makes three additional wines under their second label - Fat’n Skinny.
Hastwell & Lightfoot Fat'n Skinny Forgotten Rose is an amazing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Tempranillo grapes. Showing a deep rose pink colour in the glass, the wine opens with light floral aromas taken over by fragrances of red berries. The palate is bright and refreshing, with flavours of Rose dominant. All these delightful fruity flavours culminate in a clean finish. A perfect summer drink for those who like a dry style, this McLaren Vale Rose pairs well with a platter of Italian meats, cheese sandwiches, Fromage fort, or mushroom quiche.
