By Tyson Stelzer
'An understated rosé of pretty pale salmon-copper hue, alluring restraint, savoury character and lingering persistence. Notes of tomato and watermelon are underlined by finely textured mouthfeel and lively high altitude acidity. A well-crafted and food-friendly style.'

BEST ROSÉ – GOOD LIVING – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
By Huon Hooke
'Pale salmon-pink colour; toasty nut and spice aromas. Light and quaffable, with a lip-smacking dry finish.'
By Dan Coward
'Superb, vivacious rosé...bright salmon colour, cool strawberry and nectarine and savoury funk – exciting.'
By Mike Bennie
'A great use for rondinella grapes... It’s a pale colour, gentle aromas too – red cherries, briar, table grapes, quince. Tastes faint and yet pristine, has some tugging chalkiness through the finish, but ostensibly provides a faintly sweet then savoury experience that looks to thirst slake rather than build complexity. Not that the wine is overly simple, delicacy of texture is the important thing here. Great to glug down, but you’d sit on it too, and for sure pour deep against a charcuterie board or something that lives in the sea...'
By Tony Love
'The move to paler pink and less sweetness in Australian rosés is on and this is one of the better examples...a spiced, crunchy strawberry fresh delight.'
CIAO MAGAZINE + WINE OF THE WEEK
By Winsor Dobbin
'A thoroughly modern rosé; spicy, savoury and bone dry, that is extremely food friendly and modelled on the wines of the Veneto. It's made from 100% rondinella and matured in old oak to add texture. Pale salmon-coloured and very refreshing, this is the perfect choice for late afternoon enjoyment.'
By Andrea Frost
'A dry savoury rosé it exudes lovely aromas of berries, cherries and quince followed by a dry, creamy and savoury palate – perfect to drink on those last warm and hazy afternoons as autumn slides into winter.'
By Andrea Frost
'Lovely aromas of berries and cherries followed by a dry, creamy savoury palate.'
By Chris Shanahan
'A richly textured pale pink wine, that's more savoury than fruity. The fresh, dry palate, rich texture and savouriness put it ahead of the many too-sweet rosés on the market.'
By Peter Hay
'Lovely dry rosé, salmon pink with lots of strawberry and cherry flavours that make the perfect accompaniment to a lazy lunch.Yum.'
AUSTRALIAN WINE REVIEW
By Andrew Graham
'Smells of onion jam, strawberry and cherry fruit, with just a little barrel ferment richness to fill things out. Very correct nose. Full, dry, textural palate...the style is taut and just 'fruity' enough to make for generosity, giving that all-important textural richness. A really clever savoury rosé...I happily finished a bottle.'
By Tim White
'Pretty good depth on the palate and citrus peel, sweet-sharp pear, and mouth aromas of leasy, meally things. Finishes peach fuzzy, although is still dry and toothsome.'
By Patrick Eckel
'Lovely salmon to burnt orange colour, with a showing attractive red berries with a savoury twist. The palate is layered and complex with savoury strawberry fruits contrasted by nervy acidity and dusty spices. Has wonderful depth...a great option for those that like more depth in their rosé.'
