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 stone fruits are delicately balanced with a creamy supple mouthfeel from the bottle fermentation. The low dosage carries the crisp clean finish.
- Growing Conditions
The 2017 growing season in the Adelaide Hills was characterised by a long winter, even by Hills standards, but the temperature eventually thawed and the conditions leading up to vintage were perfect for fruit set.
- Food Pairing
Try: Fresh pan fried salmon.

"This has such elegance and completeness with a fresh-strawberry and light red-cherry nose, as well as pastry and fresh bread-dough elements. The palate has bright, zesty red-berry flavors and delivers a smoothly resolved and layered impression. Drink now."

"Sweet raspberry-jam biscuits. It’s not an out-and-out ‘sweet’ sparkling rose but it has that accent for sure. It also has excellent intensity and very good length, aided entirely by the burst of sure-footed citrus and strawberry flavours running throughout. Thumbs up here. This is good. Delicious in fact."
