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.

2013 Vintage Tasting notes

A hot and dry summer, combined with low yields, created a growing season ideal from Grenache with intense varietal flavour. This has translated to a vibrant Rose with unparalleled aromatics and natural fruit weight. Salmon pink in colour, the nose is undeniably forward with strawberry, raspberry and rose petal. An ample palate follows brimming with round, luscious fruit and a whisper of cream and spice. Soft tannins define the palate and lead to a persistent finish.

In the Pink - wines by Anthony Rose (2013 Rosé)

To many, the notion of a superior rosé is absurd – like de- scribing a cupcake as haute cuisine. Not to Richard Bampfield MW and his client, though, the enter- prising Jean-Christophe Mau, owner of Château Brown in Bordeaux, who put on a blind tasting of premium rosés at Westminster Boating Base last month.

The moment I arrived, however, I felt disconcerted. All the bottles were of Bordeaux rosé, or so it seemed. As it turned out, all the different wines, with their innumerable bottle shapes, had been decanted into clear unlabelled Bordeaux bottles. Ranging from the palest blush to deep cherry, there were more shades of pink here than on a Winsor & Newton colour chart. But variety wasn’t confined to the different hues of pink.

Half the 31 rosés were from Provence, the spiritual home of the wine. But there was also Bordeaux, the Loire, the Rhône, Navarra, Piedmont, New Zealand, Aus- tralia and England. The English rosé was a major surprise. Made from pinot noir, the excellent pale 2013 Albury Silent Pools Rosé, £14, Albury Vineyard, showed berry aromas, redcurrant flavours and had a lip-smacking tang.

Finding myself taking notes at the same table as Julia Harding MW, co-author of the encyclopedic Wine Grapes, I asked her how she was get- ting on identifying the different grape varieties. To my surprise, she said that she hadn’t thought about it at all; it occurred to me that despite the broad palette of grapes involved, variety is less important when drinking rosé than colour, bright- ness of fruit, freshness and dryness.

The Provence rosés acquitted them- selves well. Although a handful were bland and pear-droppy, the best were deliciously full, concentrated and refreshing. In particular, I liked the crisp, dry 2013 Château de Léoube Secret de Léoube, Goedhuis, Bibendum; the appetising raspberry-rich, dry 2013 Chêne Blue, Ventoux, £15, Justerini & Brooks; the delightfully berry-driven 2013MdeMinuty,£14.99,buy2=£9.99, Majestic, and the deceptively rich and full-flavoured 2013 Domaine Ott, Clos Mireille, £30, Hedonism Wines.

Surprisingly, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s wine, the 2013 Miraval Rosé, £18-20, Lay & Wheeler, Berry Bros & Rudd, was among the best, with its redcurrant and raspberry fruitiness and high level of finesse; as was Sacha Lichine’s fine Les Clans, Domaines Sacha Lichine, although it ought to be at £49, Hedonism Wines.

I also thought Italy’s distinctive 2010 Biondi-Santi Rosato di Toscana Greppo excellent, and rated the 2013 Chivite Finca de Vallatuerta, Navarra, £28.99, Mike Hothersall Wines. ###### And, from the New World, the 2013 Turkey Flat, Barossa Valley, Australia, £14, Costco, was rich in strawberries and cream.

2013 Rosé - impressive as ever

In its giant proprietary bottle, Turkey Flat's lead wine is as impressive as ever. Mostly Grenache in an elegant, textural and fruity guise, presenting evenly balanced watermelon, guava, poached strawberry and raspberry fruit with a subtle lick of sweetness neatly rounding our a refreshing finish.

2013 Rosé - like a lithe young salmon chasing a waft of raspberry smoke into a glacier

Colour: Held up to the light, with condensation forming on the glass; like a lithe young salmon chasing a waft of raspberry smoke into a glacier.

Smell: A particularly Grenache brand of berry and wood. Almost as if elves have been slam-dancing in the forest at the beginning of Autumn.

Taste: Like smashed strawberries picking themselves up from an underground hobo prize fight in Northern Ireland. Heavy on tannin for a Rose, but as light as a pixie, as delicate as your Grandma’s hand-sewn embroidery, but with a fistful of cranky Leprechaun

Variety: 81% Grenache, 10% Shiraz, 6% Cab Sauv, 3% Dolcetto

Is the 2013 lighter and less amazing than the 2012, but still very bloody awesome and still worth buying as one of the great Australian rosés you can find: Yes

Drink with: Salmon and Miso

2013 Rosé - Terrific value

In its 20th release, a well-practised blend of red grapes - grenache dominant, then shiraz, cabernet and dolcetto adding fragrance and texture - crafted into a pale pink, thirst-quencher celebrating rosé's natural fruit crunch and grenache's tantalising spice, leaning more towards this outing to a dryer style in the finish that suits it being most welcome besides many foods.

4 stars

Value: Terrific

Food: Full picnic spread

2013 - the go-to Rosé

I’m a big fan of Turkey Flat wines and this – now on its 20th release – has become a bit of a go-to rosé. From the tall, elegant bottle to the pink smudge-feathered Turkey on the label, it’s got a real feel-good factor about it.

Clear, pale salmon pink in colour, with flowers and red fruits – strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants and red cherries – leaping from the glass. That mesh of summery red fruits spreads across the fresh, medium-bodied palate. It finishes with wild strawberry and a lick of plumskin. Drink now – and all summer long. Blend of Grenache 81%, Shiraz 10%, Cabernet Sauvignon 6%, Dolcetto 3%.

2013 Rose - 'Sit back & enjoy'

Wine of the week

It's a great time of year to start thinking about drinking rose and this is one of my favourites. A blend of grenache shiraz cabernet and dolcetto. Brilliant bright pink colour with light red hues. Light and fresh palate with fine uplifting acid. Touches of Turkish Delight and strawberry. Long clean palate and great current drinking. Serve it slightly chilled or when the weather gets really warm, throw in a couple of ice blocks, sit back and enjoy.
