With a colour reminiscent of summer sunsets, blushing cheeks and your favourite croquet polo shirt, why would you not choose rosé today? Don’t let its sweet

Smells like: Cherries and strawberries, with a savoury hint

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “A gentle coral. Straight pinot noir; lightweight and almost ethereal, demonstrating how exciting the category has become in Australia. Raked with herb before a gentle lilt of strawberry, musk and tangerine notes are trailed to a dry, evanescent linger by a waft of acidity.”

    91/100

  2. “A vegan-friendly, blushing pale pink Rosé, this wine is made from 100 per cent Yarra Valley pinot noir grapes and is crisp and dry. The strawberry-scented aromas are alluring, but it’s the clean berry-fuelled finish that will have you topping up your glass. Drink it with roast cauliflower, coconut-based curries, fish.”
