The team at The Real Review have a canny little algorithm to calculate the year’s Best Value wines. It plots quality assessment against price. In the case of FREEMAN Rondo Rosé 2020 that means a 95 POINT RATING and RRP $20 which pops this hugely good value pink drop at No 3 BEST VALUE AUSSIE ROSÉ  in the rankings…

It is made from the unusual Italian origin variety Rondinella, that creates a delicious spicy wine ideal for summer sipping.

REAL REVIEW RATES FREEMAN NEBBIOLO 2016 IN AUSTRALIA’S TOP FIVE

FREEMAN doesnt make a habit of entering wine shows – that said, it’s pleasing to garner recognition for wines in the portfolio.

The Real Review run by wine writer Huon Hooke has rated the new release FREEMAN Nebbiolo 2016 a hefty 92 POINTS that pops it into Number 4 on his list of Top Aussie Nebbiolos.

‘Medium to full red colour with a trace of purple. The bouquet is earthy, meaty and forward, soft and mellowing, with a twist of the peppercorn grinder. The palate is medium-bodied and savoury, with a light kick of firm tannin at the end. A suggestion of raspberry jam and a sweet fruit core. Decent length. A Very smart nebb that already drinks well.’
