Top Rated Rose - 2022 Halliday Wine Companion Awards | "There's texture, flavour & a dry finish. In between, dabs of spicy red fruits, lemon zest & unripe pear, as in crunchy & textural. It's a top-notch rosé." 95pts - Jane Faulkner - Wine Companion
Top Rated Rose - 2022 Halliday Wine Companion Awards
Aromas of red cherry, strawberry with notes of pink grapfruit and a flick gun flint reduction. The palate is dry yet has soft and textural, juicy red fruit flavours are inter-twined with creamy textural notes all driven by a fresh pink grapefruit acid line.
"A trio of pinots noir, meunier and gris fermented in old casks makes for a fab rosé with a very pale pastel copper hue. There's texture, flavour and a dry finish. In between, dabs of spicy red fruits, lemon zest and unripe pear, as in crunchy and textural. It's a top-notch rosé." 95pts - Jane Faulkner - Wine Companion
Where this wine comes from - Yarra Valley
Just 50 kilometres from Melbourne, Victoria’s Yarra Valley is a star of the wine regions surrounding the city, known as the ‘Melbourne Dress Circle’. With plenty of microclimates and sub-regions, the Yarra Valley doesn’t have a weak link. Certainly the region’s reputation has been built on the quality of its cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. As far as Chardonnay goes, Yarra Valley strikes the right balance of ripeness, without going over the edge. There’s white peach, lemon pith and Fuji apple supported by a fine spine of citrus-like acidity complemented by supportive oak maturation. The region’s Pinot Noir certainly produces that ethereal quality that Pinot-philes go crazy for – with lifted cherry notes, texture and length. Pinosity? It’s here in spades. Don’t discount Yarra Valley Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, which also have a long history in the region and are being recognised for producing their own unique regional styles. Game on!
