-Top 5 for the Winestate Rosé of the Year 2022
This is a cracking rosé with all the fruit flavour you could ask for, but at the same time everything is presented within a savoury context. Twig and dry spice notes mingle with red cherry, strawberry and apple. It's dry, serious and fun at once. In short, it's bonza.
-Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion
Strawberry, spice and a savoury undertone blend beautifully, and the palate is crunchy with vibrant acidity that brings the wine to a nice, crisp finish. This is the kind of wine that is simply delicious from start to finish.
The Small Victories Rosé is the perfect wine for enjoying with friends over lunch or a picnic. It has just enough oomph to it to be paired beautifully with food. No matter the weather outside, this wine will go well with a wide range of foods, from spicy winter soup to charcuterie.
From esteemed vineyards in Greenock, Barossa and Murtho, Grenache plays the lead role in this compilation, a perfumed hit of crushed raspberries, red cherry and liquorice. The bright red fruits on the nose transition to the palate which is moreish and decadent. The Mataro gives some extra punch to the performance with that pillowy, cuddly mouthfeel but still delivers a dry, refreshing finish. Dark red cherry, blood orange and watermelon dominate the fruit profile, alongside some white pepper and meaty notes.

A perfumed nose of fresh flowers, wet stones and sliced strawberries. Medium-bodied with a silky texture. Fresh, with a berry core. Bright and tasty.
The bottle didn’t stay full in our house for very long 😅 In the glass it’s a pretty baby pink shade. Cranberry, raspberry and juicy citrus notes rise from the glass alongside that über refreshing spring air feel. The juiciness and refreshingness follow through to the palate with licks of lemongrass, musk and pomegranate coming through for me.
