A Rosè is (not always) a Rosè is (not always) a Rosè.

Jared Dixon's 2015 Jilly FIFO Barossa Valley Rosè is orange-red in colour, extraordinary really, with a red fading-to-bronzed orange: something like the robes of Buddhist monks. It has a tart orange Mirella-jube perfume with ripe, juicy mandarin at its edge. The oddity comes from its combination of Marsanne (a white grape) with Grenache and Mataro (reds). So it’s the Marsanne that gives it its tart-jube saltiness. Its cloudiness comes from its limited-interference ideology of making. This relatively new-style winemaking (a revival of an ancient practice?) of minimal interference, producing often a cloudiness in the wine, means that the production of difference on the palate is, for the drinker, the equivalent of learning a new language.

Rosebank Community Inc has been undergoing some changes in personnel of late – thank you to those wonderful people who’ve had to leave their positions on the committee due to other pressing needs. We are looking forward to incorporating the new energy on the committee and holding many more interesting and enjoyable gatherings in the future that will inspire many locals and those outside Rose- bank to come along and enjoy them with us.

Term 4 is underway already and we have had a great start to the term here at Upper Coopers Creek. Our new vegetable gardens are now complete and we are eagerly awaiting the harvest from our first plantings. The garden and lessons based around it are reinforcing concepts students are learning in science such as transpiration and seed germination. We would like to say a big thank you to Dierk and Sandra from Mandala garden products for all their assistance with this project.

"Receive the children in reverence, educate them in love, and send them forth in freedom."

Rudolf Steiner

A week or so ago, all Rosebank students enjoyed a special morning designed to receive our 2016 Kinder students into our school community, show our love and care for them and create a space for free play - igniting imagination, inspiring creativity and enabling connections.
