KALLESKE 2013 ROSINA ROSE $ 19

Barossa Val­ley, SA

13.5 per cent

HOT pur­ple- pink colour with red berry and glace cherry aro­mas and palate, the fruit sweet­ness com­bin­ing with a kick of al­co­hol to pro­vide a fairly abrupt fi nish sug­ges­tive of liqueured fruit cake.

DO­MAINE CHAN­DON

2013 PINOT NOIR ROSE $ 20

Yarra Val­ley, Vic

12.5 per cent

PALE salmon pink, straw­ber­ries, rasp­ber­ries and even a whiff of spring fl ow­ers on the nose, the palate light, soft and fruity with a just- off- dry fi nish that, with a good chill, would make for an ap­peal­ing sum­mer pic­nic drop. SANDALFORD 2013 ROSE $ 20

Margaret River, WA

13.0 per cent

VIVID pink with maraschino nose and con­fec­tionary musk fl avours on a heavy, sug­ary, syrupy palate that, even with a re­ally good chill to lift the wine’s acid and fresh­ness, I can’t imag­ine be­ing a pleas­ing part­ner to food or a re­fresh­ing sum­mer quaf­fer. HOME HILL 2013 ROSE $ 23

Huon Val­ley, Tas

13.5 per cent

A PALISH rusty pink colour with a bright fl oral/ spice nose, the palate more rasp­ber­ries and cher­ries with some cit­rusy high notes and touches of tan­nin, the fruiti­ness nicely bal­anced by drier, more savoury fi nish­ing notes mak­ing for a pleas­ant food- friendly, sum­mer drop.
