It's aromatic, juicy and dry, but laden with Old Vine Grenache gives an impression of subtle sweetness. Picked early to give it some slick texture, this wine sings when enjoyed with Pho Bo, Sticky Ribs, Chilli Snapper, a smorgasboard of tidbits, or simply your favourite friend(s). Rosé all day vibes.

93 pts "Not your usual rosé blend either: Grenache and Mourvèdre and a splash of aromatic whites: Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Kerner. Always great packaging from CBWC and this label with a temperature sensitive indicator letting you know when it's good to go. Very pale dusky pink hue. Fragrant and lifted: redcurrant, Turkish Delight, white stone fruit and cherry blossom underwritten with blood orange citrus, fresh plucked grass and a little pink salt. Tension and flavour with toothsome texture and fine length. Great precision in winemaking to have it bone dry and crisp, with plenty of lingering florals. Highly drinkable!" - Regan Drew, vinonotebook

93pts "Pale salmon in the glass with notes of redcurrant, raspberry, blood orange and red cherry wrapped in the embrace of some high-toned blossom flourishes along with hints of marzipan and crushed stone and maybe some Turkish delight further in the distance. Snappy and tight on the palate with a touch of tangerine peel and soft spice entering the mixing as the wine finishes crisp and vital thanks to a seam of shimmering acidity. Pretty hard to put this one down" - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion

90pts "This is fresh and crunchy with nectarines, pink cherries and rose petals on the nose. Medium-bodied, clean and polished with a delicious stone fruit character and sleek, mineral finish." - James Suckling

"A touch of candied grapefruit gives some lift, suggesting ripeness and a warm climate. The palate has a zesty nature that pulls the ripe fruit notions of watermelon and cherry into lovely focus. This is fuller-flavoured and comes with a distinct phenolic edge. The finish is dry and lasting." - Anne Krebiehl MW

91pts "It’s made with grenache and mourvèdre and it’s pretty much always good. It’s pale copper-orange in colour and it’s both spicy and textural to taste. It has a core of raspberry and earth-like flavour with top notes of orange jelly and violet. It’s both as refreshing and as delicious as you’d want and hope it to be." - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

91pts "A light salmon-pink colour. A nose of thyme, raspberry, and fresh pastries. Sweet red fruits on the palate-entry meld into a hint of herbs and supple spices. There’s a weight and density that sets this up as a food-friendly style. The acidity is soft yet guides it long" - Stuart Knox, The Real Review

91pts "Pale salmon/coral hue. Raspberry and musk sticks with a spearmint leaf like herbaceous note, just unwrapped Turkish delight, a little pink salt and papaya too. Inherently drinkable. The Chaffey Bros team have produced a  wine that has all the things you want from a rosé: Texture and vibrancy; crispness and freshness without forsaking depth of flavour or showing a thin, wan palate. Fun!" - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

"Faint strawberry, cherry notes, sweet blood orange characters. Slick texture, good finish, glides and refreshes, everything very gentle and even. Rose 101, maybe a bit more advanced, but has that huge drinkability feel. Right on." - Mike Bennie

90/100 "Bright, light, fresh pink colour with purple tints, the bouquet fresh, clean, brightly aromatic and alluring. The wine is soft and fruity, balanced and shaped to suit a lot of people's palates. A tickle of sweetness is well managed. A lovely everyday rosé. It was obviously very early-picked, but there is no greenness." - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

2018
17.25/20
"Rose gold/copper hue. chalk and musk sticks with white peach, light strawberry and raspberry cordial juice.  Rounded musky, Turkish Delight fruit profile which stays tight and focused throughout the palate. White stonefruit, hints of red apple along side the fine-herbey red berry fruit, all driven to a juicy finish." - Regan Drew, Vino Notebook

2017
92pts and Red Star for value "In perfect drinking shape. Dry, racy with acidity and flavoursome at once. Raspberry and rosehip with cuts of apple and anise. Gets you in a mind for food." - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion

91pts "Very clever, and interesting. Has a slight sweatiness over musk, redcurrant and raspberry, a scattering of dried herb in the background. Light bodied, crisp and fresh, pretty red fruit flavour, pleasing mouth-perfume, a dusting of talc-like texture, an almost limey finish. Nicely done. Good drink." - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

2016
92/100 "A pale pink-salmon colour that excites as much as the flavours of musk, rose hip, raspberries and cherries with lemon sorbet-like acidity and a lick of sweetness to finish." - Jane Faulkner, Halliday

2015
91/100 "Grenache and mourvedre. Slight spritz. Funk, earth, spice and leather, with cranberry/raspberry fruit crashing over the top. Loads up but then finishes dry. It works." - Campbell Mattison, Halliday

2014
90/100 "69% old vine grenache, 29% old vine mourvedre and 2% gewurztraminer, riesling and weisser herold. Fragrant and fruity, the power of suggestion of the 2% giving some citrus, offset by perceptible residual sugar (7.3g/l), in turn balanced by low pH; the other fruit flavours are in the red spectrum, but not particularly intense." - Halliday
