2018 OCEAN EIGHT ROSE
A dry & pale, salmon tinted Rose produced utilising the Saignee method, resulting in a fragrant & lively wine with subtle hints of strawberry & Turkish delight. Savoury & dry, with fresh acidity that will cut through heavier food flavours to leave a refreshing aftertaste. There should always be a bottle of chilled Rose in the fridge throughout summer.
Named 'Best Australian Rose' November 2018 Lux Life Magazine (UK)
