Without hyperbole, this is a bloody exciting wine. For our two cents on the matter, this may well be a benchmark as Australia steps toward defining its own style of rosé. Barrel fermented in seasoned oak, unfined and unfiltered, and bone dry.
“Very good, this. Loaded with texture, fragrance, fruit character. Supreme length of flavour, a mainlining of pinot noirs finesse but with a good dusting of spice, nutty-savouriness and general, fine-boned tannin charm. Rose and the word structure aren’t often seen in the same sentence, unless the word ‘lacking’ is in there too, but here’s one that sets that right. Excellent wine, delicious, refreshing, threatening to make you think.” 94 points, Mike Bennie, www.winefront.com.au
