    36/23/21/20% pinot noir/tempranillo/merlot/trollinger. Hand-picked fruit, gently crushed. Free-run juice fermented in stainless steel with cultured yeasts.

  3. Fontaleoni Rosato Condorino IGT Toscana 2020
    Fontaleoni Rosato Condorino IGT Toscana 2020

    Fontaleoni is a family estate run by brother and sister team, Matteo and Simona Troiani, with a little help from consultant Paolo Caciorgna. They've succeeded in producing a range that is emblematic of the best of what the region has to offer with particular emphasis on Vernaccia.

    Like all their wines they get the primo treatment in the winery. A blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot this presents with a top note of rose-petal, plum, and wild cranberry. Its bright and crunchy mouthfeel gives way to soft red fruits and that sangiovese sour cherry we all know and love. I don't know why we don't see more sangiovese base rose as they seem to get that balance of savoury and sweet so well, especially when they are pink.

    Merlot, sangiovese
  4. Chateau du Rouet Cuvee Reserve Cotes de Provence Rose 2021 375ml
    Chateau du Rouet Cuvee Reserve Cotes de Provence Rose 2021 375ml
    Never judge a book buy it's cover right? Mostly, you see the colour of this and you at least know you are on good footing to begin with. It's pale, like a blush of peach. Properly dry with a splash of sweet citrus, mandarin, ripe red grapefruit, a just tart orange aspect and then some lovely peach notes. All this is underpinned by a bright, clear, palate cleansing freshness and a nice pithy texture that licks at the sides of your mouth. It's long and energising, it both slackens the thirst with its buoyant, uplifting feel and engages the old taste buds and sets the salivary glands quivering. Who doesn't love Rose like this? It's so enjoyable to drink. ROSCOE

  5. Nocturne SR Rose 2022
    Nocturne SR Rose 2022
    This has the Julian Langworthy trademark rose-gold blush and texture. The 88% sangiovese is destemmed and left on lees for three months; the 8% tempranillo is whole-bunch pressed to old oak. The remaining 4% is grenache. This comes together beautifully. Fragrant with florals, red licorice, freshly grated ginger and a tinge of red berries. The palate is perfectly modulated between the super-refreshing acidity and its creamy texture. JANE FAULKNER, Halliday Wine Companion

  6. Domaine Terrebrune Bandol Rose 2020
    Domaine Terrebrune Bandol Rose 2020

    Limpid orange. Mineral-accented blood orange, strawberry, floral and succulent herb scents show fine definition and pick up a spicy nuance with air. Chewy and densely packed yet energetic and sharply focused on the palate, offering vibrant red berry, bitter cherry, citrus pith and honeysuckle flavors and a deeper peach pit flourish. The mineral and floral notes return on the very long, precise finish. JOSH RAYNOLDS, vinous.com

    50% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, 25% Cinsault.  An exceptional expression of Bandol Rose. Brilliant Sites, considered farming (organic) & purposeful wine making.

  7. Domaine Philippe Collotte Marsannay Rose 2019
    Domaine Philippe Collotte Marsannay Rose 2019
    Beautifully perfumed showing hints of strawberries and cream. Shows lovely texture and depth with more weight and character than one often finds for such a ‘northern’ Rosé.

    Vivid orange-pink color. Cherry, redcurrant, orange zest and a suave floral nuance on the mineral-inflected nose. Juicy and broad on entry, offering sappy red fruit flavors that are braced by building spice and mineral accents. Tightens up on a long, focused finish that echoes the floral and cherry notes.  JOSH RAYNOLDS, Vinous
    Pinot noir
  8. Reed Powers Grenache Rose 2022
    Reed Powers Grenache Rose 2022
    Bit expensive for a first release Australian Rose? Sure is. Here is why. The same fruit that goes in to her Reserve Grenache from that 150 year old plot is used here. That fruit aint cheap. On top of that she only realises about half the yield from the pressing regime. So, production costs here are expensive. Is it worth it? Yes! This was the wine that was the real catalyst for the offer. I will keep a lid on my usual excitable self but I don't want to undersell this either. This is a different beast than the overwhelming majority of rose made here in Oz.
    Bone dry and with a sensational sense of zip and liveliness, plenty of pretty Grenache perfume and bright red fruits. A big punch of ruby red grapefruit kicks in as wine quickly expands and really delivers on the promise of punchy, ripe, rich fruit and a subtle creamy textural element. It's bold and solidly built with a real sense of presence. Very long and vivid with an incisive whack of energetic, snappy fruit on the finish. It Australian rose Jim, but not as we know it. If you buy good Bandol you should get on this train asap, it rolls all the way to flavour town. ROSCOE

    This rosé was always dwelling in the back of my mind as something that would one day come through me and into the bottle. There were no shortcuts here, this wine was made with all the Gucci trimmings. Whole bunch pressed, 50% pressings yield, 150 year old bush vine Grenache barrel fermented in new Stockinger oak, it's rosé in full wine form. Textured, rich, floral, layered, powerful and long. When rosé is made with this much intention a delicious seriousness is captured in every drop.
    Winemaking Rosé: Whole bunch pressed to new Stockinger oak for the early part of the fermentation and then went through malo and élevaged in old Chardonnay barrels, bâttonaged over 6 months at least once a week, sulphured to stop wine from going through full malo because I felt the wine was in a good spot with texture SIERRA
  9. Domaine Ott Clos Mireille Coeur de Grain Rose 2021
    Domaine Ott Clos Mireille Coeur de Grain Rose 2021
    Pale orange. Displays an array of intensely perfumed red berry and citrus fruit aromas. Along with suggestions of honeysuckle, nectarine and fennel. Juicy and seamless in texture, giving deep pit fruit and raspberry flavors and a bracing touch of orange pith. Echoes the floral note on a wonderfully long, smooth finish that leaves a hint of honey behind. JOSH RAYNOLDS

    This is a wine of slick fruit, beautifully framed with the finest spiderweb of gently prying phenolics. Jubilant, lively and uber refreshing with a solid punch of red grapefruit and tart red fruits that just sing along the superbly long and overtly mineral finish. It's so refreshing and so buoyant (how can you tell the difference between a girl ant and a boy ant?... if it sinks it's a girl ant, if it floats its…) that it leaves your mouth kind of quivering. This is one of the more radiant and bright expressions of this site I can recall. Man, cooler, longer vintages are a welcome trend. ROSCOE
  10. Bodegas Frontio ‘Corneo’ Juan Garcia Rosado 2020
    Bodegas Frontio ‘Corneo’ Juan Garcia Rosado 2020

    This comes from a tinly vineyard of 80yo goblet-pruned, organic Juan García planted in gravel and granitic sand at 710 metres altitude.

    This is a perfumed, incredibly interesting dry pink. Woody like last year’s old red apples, and indeed a tad cider sour, it’s delicately floral, with orchard smells, apple tree leaves, madder rose, hibiscus. The palate is incredibly fresh, brimming sweet-and-sour and ending with the chalky grip of stony minerality and neat fruit acid. The long, squeaky finish follows a gentle savoury fruit heart. Never strict, it’s light and has excellent linger and sliding release despite the utter absence of fructose or fill. The memory of raspberry nothingness in the mouth; a touch of wildness, only bordering on unhinged! SCOTT WASLEY, The Spanish Acquisition

  11. Schmolzer and Brown Pret a Rose 2022
    Schmolzer and Brown Pret a Rose 2022

    Shiraz and pinot noir from Beechworth is the deal. Ready to roll rose.

    It’s delicious! A gentle feast, but one with lots to put on the plate. Cherry, cranberry, rose hip tea, a strawberry sweetness in a dry, ostensibly savoury style. Length and beautiful, succulent texture, great sense of freshness and lift. Crafted, styled, preened and pretty, this is a moreish and wonderful thing to drink. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front

  12. Figuiere IGP Mediterranee Rose 2021 1500ml
    Figuiere IGP Mediterranee Rose 2021 1500ml

    Pale orange-pink. Redcurrant, orange zest and subtle floral and herbal elements on the fragrant nose. Made in a juicy, forward style, offering sappy red fruit and spice flavors that show good heft and breadth. A spicy white pepper note adds bite to a smooth and nicely persistent finish. JOSH RAYNOLDS, Vinous

    Figuiere is a renowned family estate faithful to their terroir and region but also curious and innovative. Always in a will to produce the best wines, the Combard family originally from Chablis, is constantly searching between tradition and innovation, to be able to reach everyone with their products, from the small fresh wines to be tasted in summer to the great vintage that will sublimate all the tables.

    This cuvée is the result of a rigorous selection of wines whose blending and maturing are finalized with real know-how in the cellars of the Domaine Figuière. This rosé is a blend of different grape varieties: Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet.

  13. Gueissard Le Petit G IGP Mediterranée Rosé 2021
    Gueissard Le Petit G IGP Mediterranée Rosé 2021
    The Little G that all the homies want to be.  Made with a lot of care considering its level – grapes are hand harvested and manually sorted for starters.  Provence style through and through, it’s of beautiful salmon shade, with a nose of zesty citrus, mandarin and satsuma, the palate fruit driven and crunchy, with some of Gueissard’s house style showing through – a teeny bit of guava skin, red currants, tangarine/mandarin juice, and a herbal undertow.  Summer in a bottle.
  14. Hither & Yon Aglianico Rose 2023
    Hither & Yon Aglianico Rose 2023

    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. MIKE BENNIE, The Wine Front

  15. Mazi Limited Release Rose 2022
    Mazi Limited Release Rose 2022
    Mazi Wines is a collaboration between Alex Katsaros and Toby Porter - life long friends who have realised a dream to make wine together. Toby has been a winemaker at d’Arenberg in McLaren Vale for over14 years while Alex has been making wine and working on alternative variety projects both here and abroad for the last decade. All wines under the Mazi label are made dry in style and focus on food friendliness for you to enjoy the way we do – at the table with friends. The 2022 Limited Release rosé was made from handpicked Mourvedre and Grenache grapes grown in the heart of McLaren Vale.

    The fruit was gently whole bunch pressed to delicately extract the spice driven, savoury juice synonymous with Mourvedre grown in the Vale. The very pale salmon hues are the result of the gentle extraction and minimal skin contact prior to fermentation.
  16. Saint Max 'Max' Rose Mediterranee 2020
    Saint Max 'Max' Rose Mediterranee 2020

    Made from vineyards located in the Luberon and the Bouches du Rhone this descendant of Saint Max is made from 30% Grenache, 30% Caladoc, 30% Merlot, 10% Syrah. 100% de-stemmed grapes followed by direct pressing in pneumatic presses and given a short skin contact to ensure a pale and bright hue as well as an intense aromatic expression. Cool fermentation in tank at 15c with no malo in order to preserve the natural acidity and freshness of the wine’s aromas. Ageing on fine lees in tanks for 2 months then early bottling in December of the year of harvest.


  17. Domaine Fazi Ile de Beaute Rose 2021
    Domaine Fazi Ile de Beaute Rose 2021

    Pale and fresh. Watermelon rind, pink grapefruit, redcurrant, a pretty herb and floral top note. Cool flavour profile, though flavour it does have, powdery texture, clean acidity, and a zesty finish of good length. Refreshing. Lovely to guzzle. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front

    42% Nielluccio, 33% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 5% Sciaccarellu. Screwcap.

    A sound introduction to Corsican rosé, this showcases the island’s more rocky and chiselled take on the style (relative to Provence).  Tight, tense, saline, with pink grapefruit and watermelon and citrus rind, it’s underpinned with granitic minerals and bone dry.  The international varieties in the blend give a little more generosity around its fine, lean feel – only 11.5% alcohol.  Sophisticated IGP wine.


    Grenache, Merlot
