Tasting NotesCabernet Franc Rosé

Another very warm vintage has produced a rich and weighty Provencal styled wine with typical red fruit and dried herb characters and a long finish. It has our trademark drinkability and as always, is best consumed chilled and often.

Subtle red berryfruit with savoury notes and a dry finish in an impeccably balanced and food-friendly style. Designed for current drinking and best served chilled.

A beautiful ruby colour with aromas of raspberry and dried herb. Ripe red fruit and savoury yeast / herb notes on the palate  combine with soft acidity to give a hugely drinkable wine that  works with a wide range of food styles.

2007 Rosé
Light in colour, with complex berry and savoury flavours along with a dry finish and a hefty 14% alcohol. A Mediterranean food-friendly style best served lightly chilled.

2006 Rosé
A light fruity wine with wonderful red berry and dark plum flavours and a soft and very food friendly dry finish. A versatile and very drinkable style of wine best served lightly chilled.

2005 Rosé
A concentrated, fruity wine bursting with dark berry and ripe plum flavours and supported by complex barrel ferment characters and a food friendly dry finish. A versatile and easy going style of wine best served lightly chilled.

2004 Rosé  
Dark in colour, vibrantly fruity with hints of oak and a soft finish. This is a great dry style for al fresco summer dining. Serve slightly chilled.

2003 Rosé
The 2003 Rosé is a succulent, fruity style with wild berry and dark plum characters underpinned by a hint of oak and a dry finish. A versatile and stylish wine made to go with food. Serve very lightly chilled.

2002 Rosé
Typically dark in colour (for a Rosé), this wine shows the usual red berryfruit with a touch of oak and a fresh finish well suited to a warm summers afternoon. Great food wine when a white just doesn't do it and a big red would kill the culinary offerings. Enjoy it lightly chilled at any time of the day.

2001 Rosé
Dark and vibrantly fruity with a round, soft palate, this is the ideal accompaniment to alfresco summer dining. Serve lightly chilled.

2000 Rosé
Lush, ripe red berryfruit, toasty vanillin oak and light, soft tannins make up the wonderful summer flavours of this serious light red wine. Serve very lightly chilled.

1999 Rosé
Blended from Merlot and Cabernet Franc and barrel fermented as usual, the Rosé has typically deep colour with berryfruit and vanillin oak characters. It is deliciously fat and soft.

1998 Rosé
Based on our 25 Brix Cabernet Franc from the very warm 1998 vintage, this wine is another contender for the light red class. Raspberry fruit with a hint of oak from barrel fermentation add to the huge 14% alcohol giving it plenty of weight. Serve lightly chilled.

1997 Rosé
A barrel fermented Merlot / Cabernet blend more in the style of a Mediterranean light red than a typical Rosé. Serious summer lunch wine.
