Cracka Review

Pink is the word! Yes that’s right, the Cracka Wines team have decreed that this summer is all about chilled Rosé and here’s one that you will love. The winemakers behind Hay Shed Hill in the Margaret River have a strong belief that wine complements the entertaining lifestyle that we embrace, but that means free of artifice and gimmicks. That’s what you get here, an expression of the grapes as the winemaker intended. Vibrant pink in the bottle hinting at festive frivolity and once chilled this blushing wine will win everyone’s affection. It’s got a core of red fruits, mouth-watering length and nicely dry finish that makes it such a good match for different cuisines including Indian, Lebanese or Asian.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2016 Pitchfork Pink is a great example of modern Australian rose, light years away from the dark ruby red, sweet and heavy examples of the past.

Colour: Bright and clear salmon pink hues

Nose: The wine is clean, fresh and has an inviting berry fruit nose. Aromas of vanilla bean ice-cream and fresh strawberries

Palate: The palate is fresh and lively with rich juicy red fruit characters. Lingering fruit flavours carry through the palate which finishes with just a hint of red wine texture. The perfect wine to enjoy on a spring or summers day.

Alc/vol: 13.0%

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Pale, vivid pink; the flowery bouquet leads into a fresh, dry palate that has a delicious line of red berry fruit running through the length of the palate; if there is residual sugar, it's not obvious. ¥Made from Margaret River grapes.' Do tell.

Bright, light reddish-pink; has a delicious array of juicy red cherry.berry fruits with an intriguing fruit lift on the back-palate and finish, more to citrus in character.
Ray Jordan (2008 Vintage) says
This bright and cherry Rose is as fresh as a daisy. Brilliant crimson pink colour. Fresh strawberries and red berry aromas entice. The slightly sweet middle-palate finishes with a dry acidity.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
Made from cabernet juice, this has some lifted bright fragrance, sour cherries, apples and some more savoury regional cabernet accents. The palate is a bright but demanding affair with plenty of taut acid crunch and dense texture, just sweetens through the finish.

Vivid red-purple; sweet small berry/red cherry fruits; balanced acidity.

Heady, spicy aromas; phenolics counterbalanced by closing sweetness.

This is one of the more famous rose styles Ð if rose can be famous. The packaging looks great and the wine tastes just beautiful fresh light and lifted. This is a must for summer. Sweet fruit with a dry finish. Balance is excellent

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Pale rose; the attractive bouquet is clean, with sweet, gentle strawberry fruit aromas. The palate is well balanced, showing similar fruit-sweet strawberry flavours; excellent acidity gives the wine focus.
