About the wine

Tasting notes

In true Provence fashion, its pale copper with scents of cherry blossom, and ripe red berries. The berry spectrum continues on the palate, but think ripe, plum, juicy berries; add to that some stone fruit and its almost like a Peach Melba in a glass - plenty of freshness and poise but with weight, body and creaminess. As bright as the light over the Mediterranean, with a long dry, crisp finish.

Expert review

Salmon bronze in the glass with quite a complex nose of dandelion, white strawberry, rockmelon, tangerine, guava, cape gooseberry, peaches and cream, deepened by salty bacon, smoking cherry wood and pecan. In the mouth it’s juicy and fulsome, but dry with a delicious roll of red berries, peach, nectarine, rhubarb and cherry, kept fresh and gifted inertia by a focused beam of stonefruit acidity. It’s silky, unctuous and incredibly elegant, holding with confidence and ends, eventually, with a touch of cream and toast. I reckon this is Australia’s best rosé!
