Poppy the Frenchie Rosé, McLaren Vale
Like a bunch of vanilla-scented roses gifted to you in the sun. Poppy’s Frenchie rosé is carefully handcrafted from the old vine Grenache fruit, and exhibits a bouquet of cherry and strawberry, a creamy mouth feel, finishing with a continuing bright line of acid. Light and lengthy.
Shingleback Haycutters Salmon Rosé, McLaren Vale
Think aromas of freshly picked summer raspberries and strawberries, pierced with fragrant lemon rind. Nuances of rose petals and a hint of dusty minerality. Red berry compote flowing over the finely textured palate, defined by a lingering acidity.
Tulloch Rosé, NSW
A little bit dry, a little bit zesty, a little bit relaxed. Best enjoyed chilled and young as an aperitif or at a lazy luncheon in the sun.
Bunnamagoo Estate Rosé, Mudgee
Dancing flavours of strawberry and raspberry fill a palate that finishes clean and dry. A perfect all-rounder springtime drop.
Cape Mentelle Rosé Dom, Margaret River
Vibrant, fresh and classically dry. A fresh and concentrated palate with a crisp attack, and a complex textural edge. Deep with notes reminiscent of rose petals, lilac, red currants, Meyer lemon, jasmine and cassis tea. Finished with a touch of whipped cream and pink pepper.
Grounded Cru Rosé, McLaren Vale
This classic Mclaren Vale Grenache Rose is light and bright, lifted with raspberries and spice aromas leading to a textural palate with sweet red fruits aplenty. There’s a suggestion of sweetness on the nose, contrasting with the palate which finishes dry and crisp, leaving you wanting more. Pair with a platter of cheeses, olives and charcuterie.
Pink Blush Rosé Peterson House (Sparkling), Hunter Valley
A light fruity style. Natural acidity of the wine is balanced by the sweeter finish, whilst the red wine imparts a full mouthfeel and balance to the wine. The wine has an enchanting pale pink colour with fresh fruity aromas. Displaying sweetness on the mid palate and clean fresh finish. A wine to be consumed in its youth and will always prove to be a great pre dinner drink.
Rosetta (Sangiovese Rosé) Pizzini, King Valley
The wine is a blush pink colour with salmon hues. The nose exudes notes of strawberry, red cherry and raspberry with subtle herbal undertones. The palate is dry and crisp with fresh cherry and plum flavours and soft gentle tannins. The palate is long and persistent. This wine is best served with spicy salt and pepper calamari, or in the sun in your garden.
Mums Love Rosé Brothers at War, Eden Valley
This elegant Rosé is made from Eden Valley Sangiovese and Grenache. Pale pink in colour, on the nose this wine shows strawberries and rose petals. On the palate, you get the same strawberries accompanied by citrus fruits with a dry mineral finish.
