This is a brilliant Rose here from predominantly Pinot Noir and a touch Shiraz grapes.
Aromatic notes of just-ripe berries, red apple and spicy orange peel. The long palate combines a soft and slightly creamy texture with lively red berry acidity and flavours of cranberry and strawberry. The finish is savoury and dry with a touch of blood orange pithiness.
It’s aromatic, vibrant, has brilliant depth of fruit.. Very much dry style. Absolutely delicious!
94 points, 2021 James Halliday Wine Companion “Estate shiraz and pinot, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented in used French barriques, then on lees for several months. Pink with a touch of salmon; the scented bouquet introduces a fruity/savoury mix on the track through to the finish.”
93 pts Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front. “The style, the price, the quality. It deserves to be more celebrated.
A lovely drink. A stylish one. Both squeaky clean and complex. Twigs, strawberries, toffee apples, dry spice notes. Good extension. Makes you want more. And feels elegant all the while. If it was a person you’d envy it.”
