About The Wine

This little Pinot Meunier Rosé from the three Dodgiest Brothers in South Australia is pretty as a picture.

Picked nice and early to retain acidity from a vineyard in Piccadilly, this is what Rosé should be about. Crisp, crunchy, dry but with detail and flavour. It's as fun to drink as the label suggests.

Gary Walsh liked it with his 92 point review offering "So much pleasure in the glass. It’s a lovely delicate thing to drink." This is the perfect Sunday afternoon tipple.

A ravishing Rosé that will be very difficult to put down. Only 110 dozen made.

About Dodgy Bros

What started as a small garage winemaking project for viticulturalist Peter Bolte, has grown into a full-time fun-filled winemaking gig.

With fruit secured from top growers with a handshake, Peter, along with Canadian winemaker Wes Pearson and 'grower extraordinaire' Peter Sommerville are now making tasty treats in a wide range of styles from excellent McLaren Vale sites.

The Dodgy Bros wines don't take themselves too seriously. These are adventurous and energetic wines with plenty of personality.

Critic Reviews

92Points
The Wine Front

"If this wine were a sitcom, I suspect it would be an English one. It’s subtle, but loaded with nuance. Pink fruits, including pink grapefruit, a little juniper and earthy tones, almond, redcurrant and pepper dusted strawberries. Light in tone, but chalky in texture, clean acidity, and a peppery cool finish of modest length. So much pleasure in the glass. It’s a lovely delicate thing to drink." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Juice was racked after two days cold settling with minimal solids remaining, which led to a 14 day cool ferment. Post primary ferment the wine was racked of lees and cold stabilized. Bottled with no filtering and only a small SO2 addition.
