  1. 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

  2. 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

  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. Conde de Valdemar Rosado 2020
    Conde de Valdemar Rosado 2020
    It was Joaquín Martínez Bujanda who started the company in 1889 with 10 hectares of vines in Rioja Alavesa expanding the estate to include some of the best vineyards across the region. Chosen as one of the 5 Best Wine Cellars of Rioja by Wine & Spirits magazine their Conde Valdemar range of wines offer some serious punch for the money.

    This comes out swinging  with a ton of flavour, packing a 1-2 combo of wild strawberries and forest fruits. There is little lift of wild garrigue too which adds a bit of interest and complexity. It's sprinkled throughout with savoury and sweet spice blend and has a slippery texture that makes it perfect for food or oh so easy to drink in its own.

  5. Chateau Coupe Roses Fremillant Rose 2020
    Chateau Coupe Roses Fremillant Rose 2020

    Situated in La Caunette, a small and beautiful village in Minervois, just close to the Montagne Noire the family of Françoise Le Calvez, his parents, son and daughter have created something incredibly special from this little corner they have carved out in the Mediterranean hinterlands.

    Today the vineyard holdings total 143 acres with an assortment of some 40 plots in total, mostly on the mountain plateau standing high above their village of La Caunette. At 750 – 1350 ft above sea level these are some of the highest sites in the AOC. The warm days and cool nights result in one the longest growing seasons in the region. Regardless the wine remain wonderfully fresh and vibrant.

    A wonderful Provence style rose but with a little extra meat on it bones. The high mourvedre count gives this a beautiful earthy spice element that lingers gently over red and black currant fruit, orange peel and pithy citrus fruit. Still in the medium bodied category this has a little extra heft and comes of feeling firm and full as well as bright and fresh. Juicy fruits and a spicy finish bring it all together nicely.

  6. Sherrah Grenache Rose 2021
    Sherrah Grenache Rose 2021

    This is part of the new wave of South Australian producers with a new look of bright, gluggable and deceptively serious wines. No more flattening your palate with 110% oak, this is crunchy and fresh with a nod to its warm home in the Vale. Alex 'Boy Friday' is chief swirler and sniffer a title he self-bestowed and one we think gives you a good idea about what's going on at Sherrah.

    When we tasted this recently, we all cooed at the upfront blast of juicy fruit, sweet spice, and absolute slurpable nature of this Rose. Bliss! It's pure, crispy, plush and so delicious. Plenty of raspberry and red cherry fruit that is punctuated by drifting spice and crunchy acidity. Just proves that grenache is such a perfect varietal for rose. This is beach and BBQ ready baby!

  7. 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.

  8. Luke Lambert Crudo Rose 2021
    Luke Lambert Crudo Rose 2021
    Stelvin. Complex, seductive, yet vibrant and lip-smackingly delicious--that pretty much sums up Luke Lambert's Crudo Rosé. This year's wine is 100% Denton Syrah. The fruit was picked early and whole-bunch pressed before the cloudy juice was sent to tank for a wild ferment and wild malo before storage in 4,000-litre French oak foudre. Bottled, as usual, without filtration and with minimal sulphur.

  9. Spinifex Rose 2021
    Spinifex Rose 2021

    This stellar release is a blend of Barossa Valley Grenache (52%), Mataro (30%), Shiraz (16%) and Cinsault (2%). The vines are all dry-grown and mainly bush vines with an average age of 50 years, although the oldest parcels reach up to 90 years of age.

    The fruit was all hand-picked and chilled overnight, before crushed bunches were macerated for between six and 24 hours before pressing. The wine was wild-fermented mainly in tank (with five per cent fermented and aged in old French oak demi-muids), and matured on lees prior to being bottled without filtration.

    36/23/21/20% pinot noir/tempranillo/merlot/trollinger. Hand-picked fruit, gently crushed. Free-run juice fermented in stainless steel with cultured yeasts. Delicate is the middle name of this breezy, summery rosé with its dusty strawberry scent, honeydew melon and mandarin skin aromas. Walks a fine, straight line of soft, juicy acidity across the palate. JENI PORT, The Wine Companion

    Pale but bright pink colour. There's a little spicy, flinty, gently smoky funk over redcurrant and white cherry. Fresh and lively, just enough flavour, tight and focussed with superb fine chalky grip and engaging texture. Pink grapefruit too. And the finish is excellent, offering mouth-watering crunch, juiciness and tweak of tannin. Outstanding. GARY WALSH, Wine Front

  12. 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

  14. 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

  15. Honorio Rubio Tremendus Clarete 2019
    Honorio Rubio Tremendus Clarete 2019

    50/50 Viura i Garnacha, co-fermented and aged on lees in stainless after a simple cool fermentation. The Viura and Garnacha are picked, destemmed and macerated together for 2-3 days. Fermentation starts with the skins, but after a day or two the fermenting must is separated by gravity, un-pressed. The young Clarete spends up to a week on gross lees, and is then decanted and aged 6-9 months on fine lees. The lees are compacted by a small amount of bentonite. No further fining or filtration takes place before bottling.

    The look is a lustrous, vibrant see-through ('Clar' or clear being the defining thing!) raspberry pink. It's a nose of rose, red flower petals, ruby grapefruit and a builder's lime whack of chalky soil aroma. A hit of anis-scented Saké. Fresh and crunchy with good acidity, it's chalky on entry, opens easily and closes with a delicately phenolic rim, inflected with wild strawberry and a pink grapefruit-pomelo dollop. Herbs and flowerssomewhere between thyme flowers and gardenia stem - run a line throughout.

  16. Dhillon Col Mountain Grenache Rose 2021
    Dhillon Col Mountain Grenache Rose 2021
    Rosé you say! The delicious 2020 came and went in a flash, thankfully we made more in 2021. This wine sees a few hours skin contact while being pressed, ferments without the addition of yeast to dryness in old French barrels and spends six months maturing on yeast lees. It is a delicately coloured rosé, fresh and fragrant of roses, red currant and under-ripe strawberry with a vibrant, dry, textured, bright palate. It balances the line of having enough texture and flavour without having too much. It's proven to be a pleasurable wine to make as the harvest date/ripeness is critical and the amount of pressing, mixture of barrels, amount of time on lees and number of barrels to go through malo-lactic are all impactful decisions.

  17. Bernard Baudry Rose Chinon 2020
    Bernard Baudry Rose Chinon 2020
    Organic. 100% Cabernet Franc. Baudry’s irresistible rosé is drawn from vines rooted in the gravel terroir of Grézeaux and a parcel called Les Balais, which was originally planted by Matthieu’s father some 30 years ago. In contrast to Grézeaux, Les Balais is on clay and flint (silex) soils. The 2020 was picked by hand, there was brief skin contact and then the wine fermented (almost to dryness) via indigenous yeasts—two-thirds in Italian-made concrete tanks and the remainder in stainless steel.
     
    Extremely low yields have resulted in a textured yet delicate wine redolent of just-picked nectarines, wild strawberries and mountain herbs, supported by a vein of blood orange or Campari-like bitterness at the end. It’s fragrant, super-crisp and dry with a backbone of crunchy acidity.
