Reviews of 2022 Rosé:
16/20, Jancis Robinson, September 2023: https://www.jancisrobinson.com/tastings/268753
"Lovely example of the pale, dry style of rosé that has become ubiquitous these days: good fragrant slightly rustic (in a good way) rose-hip flavours, helped along the savoury path by Aglianico’s fine, dusty tannins. Delicious. (MA)."
92 points, The Wine Front 2022, Mike Bennie:
"Strong currency in regenerative agriculture and progressive environmental considerations from Hither & Yon. Here’s aglianico in a rose, pressed off slowly over/after three hours. It’s fresh and fruity, bright and lovely. Rosy fruit characters, floral and cherry-imbued, licks of Campari and pomegranate too. A bit of grip makes things nice, a light chew and pucker making for good texture. A light dusting of peppery/clovey spice in the mix too. Just-so, easy to like, a bit serious, plenty drinkable."
Reviews of 2021 Rosé:
92 points, Halliday Companion 2022, Ned Goodwin:
"This is good rosé, hewn of a majestic variety, handpicked and fermented wild. There is a ferrous chew as much as a sluice of red berries, a smattering of dried herb, tobacco and plenty of saline freshness. The wine expands, unwinding across its textural latticework while billowing intensity and impressive length. Among the best examples in the country."
90 points, James Suckling 2021, Nick Stock:
"Bright, fresh aromas of strawberries and watermelon with dried red flowers, too. The palate has a fresh, lightly crunchy edge with bright, easy going strawberries and light red cherries."
Reviews of 2020 Rosé:
The Wine Front, Mike Bennie, 95 points:
"Something different, something good. Pale orange, barely pink colour. Rose gold maybe. Chewy texture, bright cherry pip flavours, some salty-nutty savouriness, good length, good sense of vibrancy, mouth-watering finish. This does a lot. Really good drinking. Really."
91 points, Halliday Companion 2022, Ned Goodwin MW:
"Straight aglianico. Picked relatively ripe and fermented wild. All bodes well. Onion skin/gentle coral hue. Musk stick, sour cherry bitters, mandarin, pomegranate and cumquat. The phenolic rails are saline and refreshing; the acidity, crunchy. An entertaining rosé that is dry, thirst-slaking and gulpable"
Reviews of 2019 Rosé:
2019 Drink Easy Competition: Best Rosé:
"Well-structured dry rosé with scents of fresh strawberries, raspberries, red currants and cherries, a mix of redness wedded to rose petal and some light vermouth-botanical notes. Texture and finish is dry, though there is a light juiciness somewhere in there too. Lovely stuff."
Reviews of 2018 Rosé:
89 points, James Halliday 2020 Wine Companion:
"Unusual Rose with strawberry, candied citrus and Turkish delight flavours/aromas lighting up the glass. There's some sweetness to the palate but the finish reasserts some kind of dry order. Best served well chilled but given that it has carefree days written all over it."
Reviews of 2017 Rose:
Adelaide Review, Hot 100 Wines 2017/2018:
"Exciting stuff: fleshy Rose with white peach, loads of texture, bold yet elegant and so very tempting."
Reviews of 2016 Rosato:
91 Points, Andrew Graham. www.ozwinereview.com, September 2016:
"Immediately there is Muscat juiciness bursting out with lychee fruit goodness. Love that smell. Given the grapiness, it’s a surprise really that this isn’t sweet. Intrigue. Long, and open palate has very gentle acidity and a light finish. It’s not profound, but it’s not meant to be either. Captures the Muscat fruit perfectly. This will be a massive hit.""
92 Points, Stuart Robinson, www.thevinsomniac.com, July 2016:
"Delightfully pale onion skin in colour, musk and Turkish delight waft out. Cool, crisp, before the tropical fruits come on: passionfruit mainly - but there's also this fine, powdery texture that gently coats the cheeks. Latterly a touch of citrus rind comes on, immediately freshens the palate and gives a secondary wave of flavour that delivers length. Clever."
James Halliday, 01 August 2018, www.winecompanion.com.au
"Ultra pale pink; you might think this was part of whole grenache given its Turkish delight nuances, and be further confused by the palate which is part sweet and part dry - given its muscat rouge component it may be as much fruit as residual sugar. A fun wine, take it anywhere you please." 89 points
