Expert Reviews

"Brilliant bright, light pink colour. Appealing strawberry and raspberry nuances on the fine, tight palate with some delicious sweet fruit middle palate flavours. Beautiful current drinking. Rating 93 - Ray Jordan, West Australian (5/12/2009)

"Rose is all about colour - this is salmon pink - but there's more going on here. There are rich, toasty notes, as well as ruby fruits such as strawberries and raspberries and a complex palate. It boasts good acidity, yet softness. Dry and light - a great aperitif style." Jane Faulkner, Sydney Morning Herald (14/11/2009)

The colour is a brilliant, shimmering pink. The bubbles are fine and the mousse persistent.

A velvety wine of fine balance and body with subtle, fresh, fruit flavours.

A wine for both early and late evening. A delicious accompaniment to fruit desserts such as fruit salads and tarts.
