2012 10X Rosé

Made from pinot noir from what’s looking to be a great Mornington Peninsula vintage, this opens with meaty, charcuterie characters, but quickly reveals cherry, strawberry, cream, watermelon, and spice aromas. It’s smooth, with a mineral-laced acid structure and bright, intense flavours – all forest berries and citrus. It’s an easy-drinking, serious wine – something that’s all too rare – with a lovely flow, a light grip and memorable finish.
4.5 stars, Ben Thomas, The Weekly Review, November 2013

A much deeper pink hue than is indicated by the bottle shot. Good rosé though, make no mistake. 26 hours on skins then into old French barriques for wild ferment and two months maturation. No malo, 100% Pinot Noir. It smells of sour cherries, musk, strawberries, citrus and leaf with scattered rose petals. Predominately savoury with the primary fruit sitting anterior on the palate. Textural; a touch of softness and give through the mid-palate, very fine and gentle drying phenolics. Sits ever so slightly below medium-bodied. An entirely admirable take on the style.
