About The Pack
If you drink Rosé in any way, shape or form, you need this pack in your house. Nowhere else will you see a collection of small-batch, artisan Australian Rosés like this.
Each of these wines was made in a modern, dry and savoury style - no adult cordial here. These are serious Rosé wines. Pinks that pack a punch.
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
2020 Spinifex Rose
"Much more in the vein of Bandol than Cotes de Provence..."
- Peter Schell, Owner/Winemaker
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 2020 Spinifex Rose
2020 Mada Rose
Tragic events in NSW through 2020 harvest saw bushfire wipe out much of Hamish Young's fruit supply.
Hamish's good friend Barney Flanders (Garagiste) gave him a call to say he had some Tempranillo available if he was in a pinch. Hamish jumped at the chance to turn it into his highly popular pink wine.
It is made in a layered, yet delicious style. Some barrel ageing, a little time spent on lees, the fruit really sings from the glass, but there's some complexity here too.
It's dry, pale and wildly aromatic, the famous Tempranillo spice doing plenty here to lend a little something extra through the finish. A great result from a difficult year.
It's pale, it's dainty, it's a thirst-crushing style of Rose.Read more about 2020 Mada Rose
2020 Bondar Rose
Carefully crafting a spot on Rosé can be a tricky business. It may seem simple from the outside but there are a lot of decisions to be made along the way.
Take this fantastic Rosé from McLaren Vale outfit, Bondar. The fruit is picked from three sites, including from their famous home block, the Rayner vineyard. Two of the batches were fermented in ceramic egg, the third in barrel with some more pressings to get a little extra grip and "stuffing" in the mid palate. A little dash of Cinsualt bringing a little something extra to the 2020 version.
Suffice to say, Andre has nailed this release.
Theirs is a wildly successful crack at this now insanely popular "Provence" inspired style of Rosé. If you like your pinks dry but full flavoured with delicacy and deliciousness in equal proportion - you're going to love this!Read more about 2020 Bondar Rose
2020 Domenica Nebbiolo Rose
This has quickly become one of the top Rosé wines in Beechworth.
It's made from juice from the famous Domenica Nebbiolo. Fermented in barrel for texture, some solids came along for the ride to lend weight. This is a serious savoury Rosé with great backbone and drive.
There is precious little Nebbiolo fruit on the Domenica vineyard, and even less assigned to this wine, but it's a blinder.
If you're looking for a more serious, food-friendly style of Rosé, this is a great option.Read more about 2020 Domenica Nebbiolo Rose
2020 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Rose
For all of his specialties, Barney Flanders makes very fine Rosé.
This is made from mostly hand-picked Merricks vineyard Pinot Noir, with a splash of Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. It's hand sorted, whole bunched pressed, left on skins for about 24 hours before spending 6 months in neutral oak.
It's dry, delicate and beautifully perfumed, perfect for those seeking a classy, complex and savoury modern Rosé.
Gorgeous Rosé.Read more about 2020 Garagiste Le Stagiaire Rose
