The Doctors' Rose 2018 Special

The Doctors' Rose 2018 Special


The How

Crafted from flavoursome Pinot Noir and dry, white aromatic Arneis, our Rosé is the perfect proof of the joy of thinking differently. Simply put, we’ve perfected a delicious full flavoured wine by slowing the grape plant’s ability to make sugar but not its ability to make flavour. And it’s all done in the vineyard. No chemistry tricks or genetic engineering wizardry here. Just sustainably grown, naturally produced lower alcohol wine. 

The Taste

Our Rosé hits you with an exciting explosion of flavour. Fresh strawberries and ripe red cherry, with just a hint of aromatic herbs like sage and thyme. 
The wine is so fresh and light and lively it practically dances its way across your palate to a crisp and dry finish. It’s like summer in a bottle.

Reviews and Accolades

87/100 - Huon Hooke, The Real Review
Very light salmon-pink colour with a blue-ish purple tint. The aroma is very pinoty, red cherry to raspberry, with lightness and crispness. It’s not bone-dry but it's well-balanced and the finish is clean and refreshing. (80% pinot noir; 20% arneis)
