Not Your Grandma’s Rosé is made as a true rosé (picked earlier than typical red wine). 65% of the blend is old vine Grenache from the Lyndoch foothills and from Stockwell, which is co-fermented with 25% of old vine Mourvèdre also from the Lyndoch region. The remaining 10% is an aromatic blend of Riesling, Gewürtztraminer, Kerner from the Northern Eden Valley, which emphasises the strawberry, musk and turkish delight aromas. Not just for summer! Enjoy with all foods, from Spencer Gulf prawns to charcuterie. Early picking allows for a textural mouthfeel, luminous rose-diamond colour and crisp natural acidity giving great length. Grenache contributes the red berry and strawberry palate with Mourvèdre adding structure and lingering spice.

"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

"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

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
