Australia's original warm climate / high quality Rose. Incredibly the 2021 represents the 29th consecutive vintage!
"Super classy. This sits atop the Barossa Rosé podium. So sexy on the eye, gorgeous perfume diffuse from the glass with absolute ease. A belter for 25 bucks! A glorious creaminess floods the mouth on the back of red fruits and berries which do nothing but charm. Fine spices sizzle and reach long with a crunchy factor on close. Gallons of pleasure awaits. A simply glorious wine made from that equally glorious variety – Grenache.” – 95 Points. QWine reviews.
"Pale but bright pink colour. There’s a little spicy, flinty, gently smoky funk over redcurrant and white cherry. Fresh and lively, just enough flavour, tight and focussed with superb fine chalky grip and engaging texture. Pink grapefruit too. And the finish is excellent, offering mouth-watering crunch, juiciness and tweak of tannin. Outstanding." 94 Points. Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley
The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
