An attractive salmon-pink colour, the nose offers notes of strawberry and orange peel together with a peppery spiciness. Long and linear with a subtle creaminess, the palate delivers flavours of cranberry ripe brambleberry. Refreshingly moreish, this is a balanced, poised, savoury wine that carries a load more class than your average Aussie Rosé.
"92 Points. It has the most gorgeous copper hue and while it’s distinctly savoury around the edges it’s also deliciously refreshing in a fruit-driven way. Redcurrant and strawberry with earth, vanilla cream, orange blossom and dried herb highlights. It’s a delightful wine to drink: tart, fruity, savoury, energetic and precise, all at once.
