Vibrant watermelon pink, this Rosé is summer in a glass. Heady aromas of sweet wild raspberries, cream and sweet citrus blossom invite indulgence. Ripe pink berries immediately captivate the mouth, while the silky yet fresh palate continues to beckon. The remaining slight tingle of spice ensures and encore. Made with 75% Merlot and 25% Malbec.
Also our Reserve Malbec was in the running for the top of it's class as well.

Peter’s Picks Thirst Magazine “ What a wine! Not really a Rosé, but not a Red either, yet with all the bounce of an easy drinking Red, flavoursome and alive without distractions of oak and tannin. I liked this a lot. An all-purpose wine for antipasto and for early courses and in no hurry. Anita (winemaker) at her best”.
