Sandalford Margaret River Rosé 2010 “Beautiful, light rose style with a dryish finish very much in the modern idiom for Australian roses. Lifted cherry and raspberry notes on the nose with a lovely floral, lightly fruit palate. Serve chilled and enjoy to the max. Rating - 90 Ray Jordan, West Australian
Crank up the barbecue, throw on the prawns and open a bottle of this for a perfect Sunday afternoon. Ripe raspberry flavours that don't overpower a lovely fresh wine.Rating 88 - Peter Chapman Fraser Coast Chronicle (25/JAN/2011)
Nose of lavender, rose petals and hint of malt. Palate a nice balance of sugar, fruit and acid. Daivd Bowley, Nick HAselgrove, Mark Cooper, Winestate (01/DEC/2010)
Winery Tasting Notes
If you think strawberries and cream you would be spot on. Definite hints of summer pudding showing through.
There are the unmistakable primary characters of berry fruits with a hint of spice, all balanced with a natural acidity producing a refreshing and flavoursome finish. All in all a wine we believe is a benchmark Australian style. This wine should be well chilled and consumed whilst current vintage. Gorgeous!
This wine was made as a Rosé from the very first day in the vineyard. All four varieties were picked on one night and crushed to a red fermenter for 24 hours skin contact time at a very low temperature. Once the desired colour and flavour was attained the juice was drained from the solids part of the fruit. This juice was then clarified prior to fermentation at cool temperatures below 10 degrees C to maintain fruit integrity. At the desired sugar level the fermentation was ceased followed by immediate stabilisation, clarification and bottling. Pristine fruit in a bottle is more than apt to this style.
