Wine tasting notes

A brilliant light salmon pink. This wine seduces with red summer fruits of fresh strawberry, watermelon and rose petal overlain with hints of honeysuckle, cucumber and red apple skin. The nose is vivacious and lively, displaying lemon blossom and lime zest with a core of bright minerality. The palate characteristics burst forth with pink and red fruits; watermelon, raspberries and wild strawberries, with hints of cranberry. It has medium weight with a juicy yet creamy balance of red rose petal with a green lime zest finish. Hints of salinity and minerality highlight the maritime influence of the nearby ocean.

Food matching

The winemakers recommend that the freshness of the wine is well paired with a fresh watermelon, spearmint and feta salad; melon wrapped in prosciuitto, salmon quiche or a simple hunk of Comte cheese with thin slices of jamón

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2019) - 89 pts

The unreleased 2019 Rose is similar to the 2018 version, with watermelon and strawberry notes leading the way, but it's underscored this year by brighter, more citrusy notes. It's light to medium-bodied, with a crisp, savory edge to the finish.


James Suckling (2019) - 90 pts

Bright aromas of strawberries and watermelon here with a soft, gently sweet finish and bright, crunchy acidity. A blend of 58% shiraz with tempranillo, grenache, zinfandel, pinot noir, sangiovese, zinfandel, mourvedre, nebbiolo and graciano. Drink now. Screw cap.


James Halliday (2019) - 93 pts

58% shiraz, blended with 9% each tempranillo/zinfandel, 8% grenache, 4% each of pinot noir/sangiovese/mourvèdre and 2% each nebbiolo/graciano. A great deal of effort has been rewarded by an intensely flavoured (in rosé terms) wine with a burst of wild strawberry fruit, a sprinkle of spice and a crisp, cleansing finish - James Halliday
