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.

1999 Vintage Tasting notes

The interest in this style of wine has made a resurgence in Australia in the past couple of years and we are finding it difficult to keep up with demand.

This wine is almost identical in style and structure to the 1998 and we are sure you will be delighted with it. Rosé is a great alternative for the traditional pre-dinner drink and as we tell all of our customers, please drink it at the temperature you would normally drink beer. It is again made from a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

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 and Awards

James Halliday on the 1999 Rose

HALLIDAY'S TOP 100

A blend of 80 per cent Grenache, and 10 per cent each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The fresh rose petal aromas are followed by a palate that has that extra degree of length. Drink: Now. Best with: Anything you fancy. Rating: 87 Points
