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.
2021 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.
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 2021 Bondar Rose
2021 Nick Spencer Rose
Another drinking delight here from Nick Spencer.
This year's Rose release is centred on quality Grenache from the Hilltops region with some Sangiovese and Merlot adding some verve and structure.
It's light, fluffy, and crunchy - all the things you want in modern Rose.
Made in a bone dry style, this would not go amiss with some smoked ocean trout.Read more about 2021 Nick Spencer Rose
2021 Arfion Pinot Rose
Dave Mackintosh reckons the vineyard that supplies the fruit for this wine is "not great for dry Pinot but makes bloody good Rosé."
It's hard to argue, this is delicious.
Made from Pinot Noir, it's light, fresh and fragrant, with barrel ferment and lees stirring building in texture and grip to add interest to beautifully pure fruit.
Another lovely Arfion wine and everything good modern Aussie Rosé should be.Read more about 2021 Arfion Pinot Rose
2021 Nocturne SR Sangiovese Nebbiolo Rose
Julian Langworthy is known in certain circles as the 'King of Pink'.
The man crafts an ungodly amount of top shelf Rosé in his day job as chief winemaker at Deep Woods. For his Nocturne label, he's looking for a slightly more savoury and structural style of pink.
This combines Sangiovese and Nebbiolo picked specifically for Rosé into a vibrant, textural, highly-gluggable wine style that is ready to slake your thirst this Summer.
The advantage of making Rosé from these Italian varieties is that they come with plenty of tannin and crisp acidity, by using some lees time and a little barrel work, Julian and Alana can pack some flesh on those bones. Dry, savoury, and wonderfully fragrant, this will be a favourite this Summer.Read more about 2021 Nocturne SR Sangiovese Nebbiolo Rose
2021 Mada Wines Nebbiolo Rose
After the bushfire hiatus of 2020, we're back with local fruit for the Mada Rose, specifically Nebbiolo from Young (thanks to Barney at Garagiste for last year's emergency grape delivery..).
This new release has a delicate pale colour, enticing aromas of cherry, raspberry and some herbal spice, and a dry finish that borders on savoury.
There's some partial whole bunch, and a third of the fruit was fermented in old french oak.
The end result is just super Rose drinking, with a classy edge, much like winemaker Hamish.Read more about 2021 Mada Wines Nebbiolo Rose
2021 Gentle Folk Rainbow Juice
Rainbow Juice is a wine that walks to the beat of its own drum.
The 2021 iteration is a blend of just five different varieties, both red and white, all sourced from the Basket Range in the Adelaide Hills.
All the varieties were fermented for a short time on skins and then basket pressed to oak to complete fermentation. No additions of any kind found their way into the bottle, this is pure Rainbow Juice and it's seriously tasty stuff.
It's a breezy wine, wild and untamed. It screams sunshine and good vibes. Gareth describes it as Adelaide Hills spring in a glass...Read more about 2021 Gentle Folk Rainbow Juice
