“Pale salmon-pink; the red cherry bouquet sets the scene for the wholly seductive palate, candy floss never tasting better, the finish as bright as a spring day.”
Barossa Wine Show – 2019
“Once upon a time, I recall this wine having something of a lurid hot pink colour, now it’s all pale and cool. Anyway, bought a bottle from a shop the other day (it does happen) and really liked it. Now I have an official sample. I still really like it. Lovely perfume with a bit of funk and spice, quiet red fruit and white peach, soft but sure crisp acidity, gentle chalky and flinty texture, a little savoury and earthy on the finish, and very long and composed. Just so spot on.”
Gary Walsh, The WINEFRONT
“Beautiful rosé. It’s a more serious, lighter aromatic dry style. The grenache is such a beautiful variety. One or 2 per cent of skin contacted white varieties have been included. Has a little bit of palate-cleaning tannins, with a dry, savoury finish. Has that little bit of grip on the finish, which is all about making it such a good food wine.”
Ray Jordan, The West Australian.
“…this famous label looks more refined, more fragrant, more textural more persistent and more sophisticated with each passing vintage. A pale salmon hue heralds an effortless and pitch-perfect unity between red fruits, savoury allure and finely structured mouthfeel. For all it represents, a triumph, and hands down the best yet.”
