  1. Tournon Mathilda Rose 2018
    Tournon Mathilda Rose 2018
    M. Chapoutier Australia is the eponymous offshoot of the famous Rhone Valley producer. The business focuses on vineyards in the Pyrenees, Heathcote and Beechworth with collaboration from Ron Laughton of Jasper Hill and Rick Kinzbrunner of Giaconda. JAMES HALLIDAY

    The whole Tournon range offers incredible value and quality which I guess that should be no surprise given it is headed up by the un-compromising Michel Chapoutier. They are wonderful expressions of Aussie fruit with a European sensibility.

    The Tournon "Mathilda" Rose is so pretty and smells of rose petals and lively strawberry fruit. There is a hint of underlying grapefruit and that 'Provencal' peach. Its pristine and clean on the palate with pure red, spicy fruits that burst in your mouth. Super-refreshing! We couldn't believe the price when we tried this. PWS

  2. Domaine de Triennes Rose 2020 375ml
    Domaine de Triennes Rose 2020 375ml
    A winery with great pedigree, Triennes is a joint venture between Jacques Seysses of Domaine Dujac and Aubert de Villaine from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti and is located in the Var, to the East of Aix en Provence. 

    Farmed organically since 2008, the aim of the estate is to produce wines that speak clearly of the bright sky and diverse terroirs of the region. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot, Grenache and Viognier provide the raw materials for their stunning range of wines from their pale, savoury rose through to the characterful rich reds for which Provence has become famous.

    We've said it before but year after year this is always such a lovely bottling. Hints of wild strawberry, a touch of red currant and fresh cut peach all jostle in an airy and fragrant nose. Not too heavy, not too light it has lovely plush fruit under-pinned by gentle acidity. It would be a chameleon on the table pairing with so many foods. PWS

  3. Jules Mediterranean Rose 2019
    Jules Mediterranean Rose 2019
    Hugh and Jane Faulkner fell in love with a vineyard, situated on the foothills of the Masif des Maures, in the centre of the Var, and settled at the property in 1989. Their eldest son Julian would eventually take over the running of the vineyard in 2000. A shrewd wine businessman and talented vigneron, Julian established the Jules label with the mission to craft delicious, accessible, and great value wines with single estate personality.

    Another killer Rose from Jules and one of those wines you ask yourself how they can do it for the money? Hints of citrus peel, fresh cut fennel and cranberry/red currant fruits on the nose follow into a juicy palate of crunchy, bright red fruit with a white pepper finish. Really juicy and bright but perfectly dry and eminently drinkable. Now under screwcap how can you go wrong? You would be crazy to not have a dozen of waiting in the wings for every time someone drops by for a drink on the patio or that last minute BBQ invite. PWS

  4. Pittnauer Pitti Rose 2018
    Pittnauer Pitti Rose 2018
    In a world of overhyped rosé, here's a pristine, flavoursome, tightly focused and refreshing expression from Pittnauer. Its floral bouquet of raspberries, red cherries and a whiff of citrus oil overlies a hint of meatiness. Long and brightly lit, with a juiciness that is never rich or cloying, its charmingly vivacious palate is underpinned by a fine chalkiness, finishing with a tangy, lemony acidity. It's a delightful combination of flavour, freshness and brightness.

  5. Bondar Rose 2020
    Bondar Rose 2020
    A blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Cinsault, sourced from four sites with a range of soil types--from the white sands of Blewitt Springs to the cracking, black clays of Whites Valley. Fruit from all four blocks was hand-picked, then crushed and left to sit on skins for varying amounts of time (three, six and twelve hours).

    Two parcels of Grenache were fermented cooler, while a smaller parcel of the Estate Grenache and Cinsault were fermented warmer in old oak, providing a 'funky' blending fraction that brings food-friendly grip and texture. A pale, fleshy and deliciously red fruited rosé from a producer that can do no wrong. Perfect balance and some lovely complexity make this an exceptional buy.

    This is one of our favourite Rose's the last couple of years and Bondar seem to just produce hit after hit. This is so dangerously drinkable - you have been warned! PWS

  6. Bondar Rose 2021
    Bondar Rose 2021
    "There must be a bit of magic behind Bondar. All of the wines have an ethereal quality" JANE FAULKNER, Halliday Wine Companion

    We couldn't agree more. There does seem to be a little bit of magic going on behind the scenes here. Certainly great vineyards play their part here but a lot has to be said for what Andre Bondar is doing with the wines. Chat with him and he always reveals a beautfiully considered and throughful approach to wine making that shines through.

    Haliday called the 2021 one of Australia's finest rose and we reckon the 2021 is just as good. 100% grenache, this is a bright, delicate and aromatic rose that presents with a pale colour but lacks nothing on flavour or palate impact. Wild strawberry and red current fruit are flecked with Provencal herbs and an light orange rind twist. Its lithe and lifted but with plenty of succulent fruit. This is a wonderful rose that you will not be able to put down.

  7. Chateau du Rouet Cuvee Reserve Cotes de Provence Rose 2019 375ml
    Chateau du Rouet Cuvee Reserve Cotes de Provence Rose 2019 375ml

    The Château du Rouët is situated, at the foot of the red rock mountains, nearby the Roman town of Fréjus. Once a Templière farm, the Château is now settled at the foot of the Rouët mountain range, a volcanic bar of red ochre, at an altitude of 560 metres with five generations of rich history inter-twined though this impressive estate.

    The vines, set between the Gorges de Pennafort and The Gorges du Blavet, are spread out over 70 hectares of preserved area, classed as Natura 2000. Oriented towards the South and they benefit from the Mistral as well as the breeze from the seaside which maintain freshness and acidity from the otherwise warm Mediterranean climate.

    Around 60% Grenache with 30% Cinsault and a touch of the traditional Tibourenc grape the harvests are done at night to maintain freshness and the light maceration’s performed in temperature controlled tanks to help maintain a wonderful lift to the wines. PWS

    Brilliant onion skin color. Fresh red berry and tangerine aromas show good clarity and pick up a subtle floral nuance with air. Juicy and silky in texture, offering subtly sweet strawberry and citrus fruit flavors and a hint of honeysuckle. Finishes smooth and well-focused, leaving a hint of candied orange zest behind.

  8. Honorio Rubio Tremendus Clarete 2018
    Honorio Rubio Tremendus Clarete 2018
    Honorio works in a specific sector of Rioja - the Najerilla Valley, which favours high quality Garnacha. He is both a conservator of marginal historical styles, notably the Clarete pinks of which he is the leading proponent, and also an innovator working at the margins of textural enhancement in both Viura whites and Claretes.

    Claretes have been extremely important wines in Spanish history - most of Ribera del Duero, nearly all of DO Cigales and a lot of Rioja and Bierzo has been about the production and consumption of Claretes (historically, red and white grapes co-fermented in open concrete vats and aged for as much as a year in caves). However, contemporary appellations no longer have a legal definition/classification available for such a style.

    50/50 Viura i Garnacha, the look is vibrant see-through ('Clar' or clear being Clarete's defining thing!) raspberry pink. There are red rose petals, ruby grapefruit and a whack of chalky builder's lime soil aroma. There's a big hit of Saké, like polished rice washed with wild strawberry. The palate is full, open and soft on entry then a blood orange skin tannin-acid brings the zap and tang. The phenolics tuck in the middle and a squeak of builder's lime comes to finish the job. Texture yields to a wildly exciting, flavourful-perfumed acidity. PWS

    Chateau Coupe Roses Fremillant Rose 2019
    40% Mourvedre, 30% Cinsault, 20% Grenache, 10% Syrah (Organic)
    Limpid peach skin. Nectarine, strawberry and a hint of honeydew melon on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering juicy red berry and pit fruit flavors that take on a suave floral accent as the wine opens up. Blends weight and finesse with a steady hand and finishes long and energetic, with repeating florality and lingering peachiness. This wine could pull double duty, paired with a wide range of foods or just for drinking by itself. JOSH RAYNOLDS

  10. Nocturne SR Rose 2020
    Nocturne SR Rose 2020
    Last vintage won the James Halliday’s Wine Companion Rose of the Year, just saying.
    Has a little dirt under its nails with a subtle sulphide stink, and also, something lifted and floral kind of like Moscato, tangy redcurrant and barely ripe cherries, fennel tips, a fine chalky feel, a lot of energy, almost into white wine style, but with a bit of extra red berry oomph. Ruby red grapefruit zips up a nice long finish. Really good, and I suspect it may improve a little as it settles into bottle. GARY WALSH

  11. Nocturne SR Rose 2021
    Nocturne SR Rose 2021

    Of all things, today I’m listening to the soundtrack to “Pretty in Pink”, which is not quite yacht rock, but it’ll do for the morning session. Here we have 74% Sangiovese, 17% barrel-fermented Nebbiolo and 9% Tempranillo.

    Spicy, peppery, dried herb and floral perfume, white cherry and pink grapefruit. It’s dry with a grainy and chalky grip, subtle but engaging flavour profile, a coolness to acidity, and a dusty finish of crunch and excellent length, a little amaro tang in the aftertaste. Texture is a highlight in this high cheekboned style of rosato. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  12. Medhurst Estate Rose 2020
    Medhurst Estate Rose 2020
    This is a deliberate and considered Rosé, which starts from dedicated parts of the vineyard to ensure ripe flavours, fresh fruit and a trademark chalky fine finish.

    After hand-picking into 450kg bins, the fruit is placed overnight in a coolroom for the stalks to dry up, and the enzymatic reactions to slow down allowing a more gentle and pure extraction of juice at dawn the following day. Whole-bunch pressed grapes and yields less than 500 litres per tonne ensure delicate, pale and highly flavoured juice. Final blend was 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Shiraz. Fermented in stainless steel at moderate temperatures (up to 22 degrees) to enhance mouthfeel. No added acid or sugar, dry balanced and made with minimal intervention. PWS

  13. Domaine d’Eole Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rose 2018
    Domaine d’Eole Coteaux d’Aix en Provence Rose 2018
    A blend of 50% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 15% Syrah and 5% each Carignan, Counoise and Mourvèdre, the 2018 Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Eole Rose performed well in two tastings (one blind). It's a bit richer and earthier than most, with scents of fraises des bois accenting notes of peach and melon. It's medium-bodied and silky in texture yet with a crisp, lively finish. JOE CZWERWINSKI, RobertParker.com

    Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Carignan. Importer: FelixR Strawberry, peach, cinnamon, basil, a subtle clay-like earthiness. It's fleshy and glycerol, smooth and flavoursome, with a firm but unobtrusive cut of acidity. Finish is quietly fruity with a chalky edge underlining its satisfying length. Weight with classic styling. Excellent. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

  14. Thibaud Boudignon Rose de Loire 2018
    Thibaud Boudignon Rose de Loire 2018
    Substantially Cabernet Franc, with some Grolleau and a little Gamay, from 38 year-old vines, grown on shallow soils of grey schist, rhyolite and sand. Cool-fermented in stainless steel with native yeasts for 2-3 weeks, followed by maturation in tank for 4 to 6 months before bottling. Malolactic conversion is inhibited to produce a fresh, vibrant, yet textural rosé, with good length and intriguing mineral complexity. V&V
