Food-friendly, refreshing and increasingly sophisticated, Australian rosé is deserving of the attention of us all. And, it must be said, far more so than cheap imports. The diversity has never been more compelling. Our eight shortlisted finalists for Rosé of the Year hail from eight different regions and at least six varieties, testimony to the grand spectrum of styles that make this category so exciting. The winner is a masterfully executed and thrilling take on nebbiolo from an iconic site in the Adelaide Hills!

"Sourced from one of the Hills' more recognised Nebbiolo patches in the Macclesfield district. Pink with copper tinges. The nose is a little earthy, along with its red fruits, and then you get a rush of crunchy, zingy red and white berries, a peppery spice and salivating finish, leaving the palate thirsty for more and more. Fantastic rosé." – Tony Love
