Large bottle 2018 rose

The Barossa Valley has the perfect climate and ideal grape varieties to produce Rosé. It is a wine style that should be enjoyed fresh and chilled.

Having been amongst the first to lead the great Rosé revival, it has been interesting to watch the popularity of this wine style grow.

Bucking the notion that Rosé is an afterthought, our 'Prince of Pink' has a special place in our hearts & is crafted with a clear purpose.

Sourced from specific sites achieving perfect yields promoting prominent primary fruit while retaining appealing palate cleansing crispness.

Enjoy with: Friends, under a tree on a hot, summer's day. Not summer? Just turn up the heat & serve with Asian or Spanish inspired spicy or seafood dishes. Best served chilled.

1997 Vintage Tasting notes

Our faith in Rose, as an alternative Australian lunch wine to be enjoyed without pretension has now been vindicated. This lively and lovely wine full of crushed strawberry flavours continues to bring smiles to all who taste it, including James Halliday who has placed it in his ‘Australia Top 100’ wines for 2 years in a row – the only Rose to achieve such an honour.

Good pink wines are light crisp and fresh. This one may be described as an operetta wine but it is a first class operetta. We have used Grenache, Shiraz, and Cabernet to make a wine which gives pleasure in a light hearted, undemanding way. Pink wines are always served chilled.

Reviews for the 1997 Rose - a delightfully nutty, zippy wine

WINE - THINK PINK! By Drew Lambert 16th January, 1998

A heady aroma of cassis and musk.

THE ADVERTISER – July 30, 1997

This Grenache / Shiraz / Cabernet is delightfully nutty, zippy wine which will drink very, very quickly during the coming spring and summer. Rating: 86 Points
