About The Wine

Here's an experimental Rosé from young Angus Vinden in the Hunter Valley.

After tinkering away with 10 different ferments during the 2018 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 61% Tempranillo, 26% Shiraz and 13% Semillon - the spice and juicy red fruits cut with the racy acidity of the Semillon - the wine works a treat.

With 92 points from Mike Bennie, this is spot on for the modern lover of dry, savoury Rosé.

About Vinden Estate

Young Angus Vinden is the owner/winemaker of this much-loved Hunter Valley winery.

Having taken the reins from his father just a few years ago, Gus is reimagining his family's wine label with a string of exciting, modern wines coming out of his cellar.

He sources fruit from some of the Hunter's greatest vineyards, focusing on Semillon and Shiraz primarily as well as turning out a very good Tempranillo.

He's one of the young guns of the Hunter Valley that should have a close eye kept on him. His wines are on the up!

The Wine Front

"A much better release than the 2017, feels like way more has gone into this wine. Single vineyard rose here – mostly tempranillo, some shiraz, a splash of semillon. Clever winemaking. Left on lees, matured in oak. Beautiful pale pink colour. Lively perfume of cherry and pomegranate, very pure and fresh feeling, just a hint of florals. Palate is juicy, super fresh, indeed, feels like biting into young cherries, carries along with crispness and tangy acidity, finishes chalky dry. Pitch perfect really." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
