An elegant, fragrant perfume with fresh rose petal, delicate strawberry fruit and raspberry friand.A light, soft and creamy core with low acidity, leads to a juicy dry finish featuring delicate ripe strawberry and fresh rose petal flavours. Balanced and remarkably fresh, this wine imparts a comfortable, clean and delicious mouthfeel.

100% shiraz. Aromas of redcurrant, pomegranate and sesame are bolstered by the reflected reality on the palate. The acid that weaves through the fruit corsets it all together, making this a great value rosé. Chalky phenolics tied to the finish shape the wine.
Highly Rated - Huon Hooke The Real Review
Very light-pink hue. The aroma is shy and reserved, and a bit lacking, while the palate is crisp and dry, refreshing and firm to close, and quite quaffable. The dryness and near-austerity of the finish is appetising.

I never really think ‘Western Australia and rose’, though Great Southern and Swan Valley are changing my mind about that at pace. Margaret River and rose? Seems to be a general work in progress. Everyone seems to have too much use for their red fruit, per se.
Smells of lemon before red berries, faint bay leaf and sea spray, sits in the palate with slickness and clunky, tart acidity jostling. Does have refreshment written into the DNA of the wine, but the coarse acid, greasy texture and light on fruit flavours don’t quite find coherence for me. OK.
2020 was a stunning vintage featuring low yields with fantastic quality; characteristics that will define this vintage as 'rare and fine'. Spring development was early followed by a warm start to summer and continuing into fine sunny, dry conditions throughout the summer months. This combined with lower yields, brought an early start to harvest. Conditions were ideal early on with minimal bird pressure due to timely arrival of Marri Blossom and no disease pressure. Bird pressure increased following a rainfall event late February, resulting in the reds being netted. Conditions also cooled slightly, extending the red vintage, delivering ideal tannin ripening and fruit flavour preservation.
