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
2019 Dominique Portet Fontaine Rose
"Excellent. So nicely done. Pitch perfect Portet."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
Who better to make an Australian interpretation of Provence styled Rosé then a Frenchman who has worked in Provence?
The Portet family were one of the pioneers of this modern, dry, savoury style of Rosé and this is one of their best releases to date.
Made from Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot - this is a deceptively textural style of Rosé given that it never sees a wooden barrel. It's dry, crisp and ludicrously easy to drink.
This is consistently one of the great bargains of Australian Rose.Read more about 2019 Dominique Portet Fontaine 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 Yetti and the Kokonut B'Rose
The B'Rosé is the product of the bromance between Dave Geyer and Koen Janssens. Two friends that love making wine together. This is the perfect little pink for Summer.
This is Cab Franc, Semillon, Red Semillon, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Meunier vinified separately and blended together to make a wonderfully aromatic style of Rosé. The fruit was fermented in old oak with a varying time on skins.
The varieties complement each other perfectly to create an energetic wine brimming with personality.Read more about 2020 Yetti and the Kokonut B'Rose
