If you take your Rosé seriously and really like to drink pink, this pack is for you.
2019 Tonic Wines Rose
Tantalising release of Rosé this year from the guys at Tonic Wines. Mataro and Grenache have handpicked from the Clare Valley and Blewitt Springs in McLaren Vale.
The wine spent 5 months in old barrels before being sent to this very stylish bottle and sealed with a cork. It's savoury and structured and thirst crushing. A dead serious Rosé tracking more toward Bandol than Provence in style.
It's a modern Australian Rosé for grown-ups. As Glenn Barry says, "enjoy with fine food and even finer friends."Read more about 2019 Tonic Wines Rose
2019 Spinifex Rose
Lovers of this wine, get excited. This is an absolutely stellar release of one of Australia's benchmark Rosés.
The Spinifex Rosé has become one of Australia's benchmark examples over the years and it's easy to see why. Pete Schell treats the wine seriously, intentionally picking the various fruit components from vineyards up to 120 years of age and blending meticulously for his final product.
So much flavour and depth but oh so elegant and impossible to put down. Bandol, eat your heart out. A no-brainer.Read more about 2019 Spinifex Rose
2019 Golden Child Beach Bum Rose
James Hamilton is making plenty of waves with his small estate grown Adelaide Hills-based operation. And rightfully so, the wines are stylish, accessible and widely appealing. In short, he's killing it.
Here's his Beach Bum Rosé made from Pinot Noir grown on his dad's block in Kuitpo.
Hand-picked, barrel fermented, set to a dry and savoury styling, this is a flat out delicious rendition of pink wine from the Hills.
It's the perfect pink to tuck in the esky for a day of beach cricket with friends.Read more about 2019 Golden Child Beach Bum Rose
2020 Vinden Headcase Rose
Here's an excellent Rosé from young Angus Vinden in the Hunter Valley.
After tinkering away with 10 different ferments during vintage in the pursuit of the classic pale, dry Rosés made famous from the south of France he finally settled on this whacky blend.
It's made up of Tempranillo, Semillon, Shiraz, & Gewürztraminer with some lees from the Vinden Chardonnay barrels lending a bit of x-factor to the final wine. The spice and juicy red fruits cut with the racy acidity of the Semillon - the wine works a treat.
This is spot on for the modern lover of dry, savoury Rosé.Read more about 2020 Vinden Headcase Rose
2019 Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown Pret-a-Rose
VS&B continue to kick goals with each new release - without a doubt one of the great rising stars out of Victoria. Here comes their beautiful dry, complex Rosé, right on point.
This all-Beechworth blend of Pinot Noir and Sangiovese is a must-try for lovers of a more savoury style of Rosé. It was made naturally with no additions except a little sulphur. Hand picked, basket pressed straight into, as Tessa puts it, "oooooooold barriques" then left alone on lees for a few months to build body.
The fragrance and soft red berries of Pinot Noir combined with the gentle spice and structure of Sangiovese makes for a winning combination.
Rosé continues to grow in popularity and with so many easy-to-love examples like this out there at the moment, it's not hard to see why.Read more about 2019 Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown Pret-a-Rose
2019 Small Island Patsie's Blush Rose
"It may well be the best rose I’ve tried this year."
- Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
The Small Island Patsie's Blush is a micro-batch Rosé made from premium Tasmanian Pinot Noir.
The juice was fermented in old oak barrel low and slow, getting to dry with a lovely layer of texture and complexity.
It's dry, refreshing, lifted by a creamy, pillowy mouthfeel. It's a delight to drink.
There is an extremely limited amount of stock available. Dive in while you can.Read more about 2019 Small Island Patsie's Blush Rose
