About the Wine

This wine is built for guzzling.

Made from 100% barrel fermented Pinot Noir (777 clone) which was sent to bottle with no additions bar a little sulphur. It's the kind of wine that just jumps out of the glass and says "Hello!". It has the fluffy texture that you want in Pinot Rosé, with a chewy mouthfeel and bright fruit. The finish as clean as a whistle. But there's some attitude there, too. It's pretty but cloudy all at once.

If you're in the mood for a funky Rosé with a healthy amount of spunk, you're going to want to get in on this number.

About Swinging Bridge

Swinging Bridge is one of Orange’s premier producers. The producer has always served up extremely well-priced, classically styled wines, but recent years has seen the Quality and variety go to another level.

Owner/winemaker Tom Ward has a vision for Swinging Bridge to be renowned for its premium Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and for innovation, and they're making great strides.  Their Chardonnay is already as good as any in the region; the Pinot Noir, while early days, is winning trophies and shows great promise; the innovative '# Series' is full of all sorts of deliciously quirky experiments.

An excellent producer and a leader in the future for Orange and NSW wine.


Critic Reviews

DDS review

“Very good, this. Loaded with texture, fragrance, fruit character. Supreme length of flavour, a mainlining of pinot noirs finesse but with a good dusting of spice, nutty-savouriness and general, fine-boned tannin charm. Rose and the word structure aren’t often seen in the same sentence, unless the word ‘lacking’ is in there too, but here’s one that sets that right. Excellent wine, delicious, refreshing, threatening to make you think.“ - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From the Producer


Made from the 777 clone, the grapes were pressed soon after harvest and transferred straight to older, seasoned barrels. The wine underwent lees stirring and limited sulfur additions prior to bottling.


Enjoy upon release and over the next two years.
