Haycutters Rose 2021

Tasting Note

Blush apricot pink. Heritage rose and cranberry aromas lift from the glass. Flavours of summer strawberries, orange peel and mineral textural elements fill the palate. The vibrant fruit flavours of this dry Rosé are focused into the lingering finish by a refreshing natural acidity.

The Real Review

Medium onion-skin hue in the glass. The nose lifts with toffee apples and fresh-baked pastries. Light to medium-bodied, with bright fruits and caramel notes across the palate. Reasonable length and drive with a fizz of acidity lingering into the finish.

50/30/20% pinot noir/shiraz/mourvèdre. An intriguing blend, with rosé being the best use for whatever pinot is left in the Vale. Even better, this is good. The price tag – usually indicative of the undrinkable - begs disbelief! Poised, nicely concentrated with a lighter shade to the contouring, fresh and dutifully dry. Orange pastille, citrus verbena, maraschino cherry and rosehip. Possibly the best $15 Australian wine I can recall tasting.
