Pinot Noir fruit for the Ashton Hills Vintage Rosé is sourced from a single vineyard lying in the Piccadilly Valley – a particularly cool, wet and humid part of the Adelaide Hills. An area well-suited to producing crisp, finely-flavoured sparkling wines.
Lifted fresh strawberry and cranberry aromas, with hints of rose petal and creamy biscuit notes. Crunchy fresh raspberries and stonefruits are delicately balanced with a creamy supple mouthfeel from the bottle fermentation. The low dosage carries the crisp clean finish. As always, terrific for the money.
A fresh, traditional-method sparkling that hails from an excellent vintage in the Hills region, this has aromas of light strawberry and pastry with fresh citrus and apple, too. The palate has such smooth, dry and supple style with flavors of watermelon and red apples, as well as pink berries. Gently creamy finish. Drink now. 92 Points, Nick Stock – JamesSuckling.com
