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 Bondar Wines Rosé
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 2019 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 2019 Bondar Wines Rosé
2019 Mada Wines Nebbiolo Rose
This is Nebbiolo from a dry-grown vineyard outside of Young in NSW.
It was 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 Nebbiolo tannin doing plenty here to lend a little structure and framing. This is a thirst-crushing style of Rosé.
The third release of Rose nailed well and truly by Hamish.Read more about 2019 Mada Wines Nebbiolo Rose
2019 Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown Pret-a-Rose
VS&B continue to kick goals with each new release - without a doubt one of the great rising stars out of Victoria. Here comes their beautiful dry, complex Rosé, right on point.
This all-Beechworth blend of Pinot Noir and Sangiovese is a must-try for lovers of a more savoury style of Rosé. It was made naturally with no additions except a little sulphur. Hand picked, basket pressed straight into, as Tessa puts it, "oooooooold barriques" then left alone on lees for a few months to build body.
The fragrance and soft red berries of Pinot Noir combined with the gentle spice and structure of Sangiovese makes for a winning combination.
Rosé continues to grow in popularity and with so many easy-to-love examples like this out there at the moment, it's not hard to see why.Read more about 2019 Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown Pret-a-Rose
2019 Golden Child Beach Bum Rose
James Hamilton is making plenty of waves with his small estate grown Adelaide Hills-based operation. And rightfully so, the wines are stylish, accessible and widely appealing. In short, he's killing it.
Here's his Beach Bum Rosé made from Pinot Noir grown on his dad's block in Kuitpo.
Hand-picked, barrel fermented, set to a dry and savoury styling, this is a flat out delicious rendition of pink wine from the Hills.
It's the perfect pink to tuck in the esky for a day of beach cricket with friends.Read more about 2019 Golden Child Beach Bum Rose
2019 Luke Lambert Crudo Rosé
Consistantly one of our favourite Summer go-tos - the Crudo Rosé always delivers the goods.
Luke Lambert. The Yarra Valley. The 2019 vintage. It all came together. This is a blistering Rosé from Luke.
The winemaking remains pretty much unchanged; it's made up of 80% Syrah and 20% Nebbiolo, the wine is fermented in large format oak, the lees worked throughout, the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered. Luke likes a little funk and chew in his Rosé and he says this is very similar to the highly touted 2017 release.
If you've been a fan of this wine in the past, you're going to love the 2019 version.Read more about 2019 Luke Lambert Crudo Rosé
2019 Dormilona Rosado
Rosado is a much-loved wine style in Spain.
The easy drinkability and refreshing crispness of these wines mesh so well with the Spanish culture. Much like ours, here in Australia. Here, Jo Perry tries to capture the essence of Rosado.
This is 100% Tempranillo from a block not far from the Dormilona winery. It's made classically: whole bunch pressed to a combination of barrels and tanks with a little amphora action as well, gently worked during ferment and then stirred for three months after.
It's spicy and bristling with personality. The perfect wine to take on long lunches on warm days.Read more about 2019 Dormilona Rosado
