This mix contains two each of these three refined rosés.
Saint Max Cotes de Provence Rose 2021 - This delicious fresh Provence rose is made by well-known Chateauneuf du Pape based producer Château Mont-Redon. The wine is a blend of 60% grenache, 25% cinsault, 8% syrah and 7% carignan, with the fruit coming from vineyards located in Côtes de Provence, the largest appellation within Provence. "Pale pink color, intense citrus (grapefruit) and peach notes and a delicate, intense mid-palate. Ideal as an aperitif, with shellfish or crusted prawn served with citrus sauce."
Pierre Fabre, Winemaker.
Medhurst Rose 2022 - Delicious Yarra Valley rosé. "Very pale copper with a bright vibrant pink hue. Deliciously elusive fresh fruits including strawberry and raspberry are supported by tropical fruits and the white blossom of jasmine. The palate is savoury and refined with a supple creamy texture. The finish to the wine is superb, fresh fruits lovley roundness and weight and a long chalky delicate line that is the trademark of this single vineyard wine." Winemaker's notes. "The faint salmon hue reflects the whole-bunch pressing used to make this a purpose-built wine from the ground up."
95 points, James Halliday Wine Companion as well as a Special Value Rating.
Terre a Terre Piccadilly Valley Rose 2022 - new Adelaide Hills favourite from winemaker Xavier Bizot that's a lot more savoury and structured than most Aussie examples. In the glass this is very light copper. On the nose you’ll find peach, melon, gooseberry and musk. On the palate, fresh red berry fruit carries a wisp of savoury oak. Clean and zingy acid brings balance and a pleasant grapefruit pithiness appears on the deliciously dry finish.
"The 2022 Piccadilly Rosé is made from Cabernet Franc (35%), Trousseau Noir (30%), Merlot (25%) and Mondeuse (10%) from our Piccadilly Valley vineyards. It is made in old oak, with some ageing on lees. It is a more complex style of rosé than most Australian examples, and can be aged for up to 5 years. The 2022 has the signature characters of Cabernet Franc – floral aromatics, berry flavours and a gentle tannin grip on the finish. The Trousseau Noir, Merlot and Mondeuse add some middle palate texture and pleasant bitterness on the finish."
