Angove Nine Vines Grenache Shiraz Rose

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Before Rosé became trendy, Angove had been pumping out their version of Grenache and Shiraz to much critical acclaim. It has now become one of the country’s most awarded pink styles and it goes brilliantly with food. It’s got superb red fruit vibrancy with intense raspberry and strawberry aromas before a crisp, tangy palate and a pleasing, dry finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Pale salmon pink.

Nose: Vibrant strawberry, raspberry and cherry aromas.

Palate: Fresh fruit salad and lovely crispness on the palate.

Food: Any grilled fish or meat and the juiciest tomato basil and mozzarella salad, dressed with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.

Cellaring: To 2018

Alcohol: 12.5%

Angove Nine Vines Grenache Shiraz Rose

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
Bright pink; an early picked blend of grenache and shiraz with a fragrant bouquet of strawberry and raspberry, the palate providing a replay via its display of juicy fruit; it’s not complex, purity being its game. One of the most reliable roses on the market.

A bright, juicy rose made in a relatively 'drier' style without the excessive sweetness of so many. Fresh and floral, its bouquet of raspberries, red cherries and musky floral notes reveals a hint of spice. Pleasingly clear, with a juicy, lingering palate of small red fruits and cranberries over a fine chalkiness, it finishes with lively acids and genuine length.

Honest and flavoursome if perhaps slightly candied, this fruity and forward rose presents a smooth, gentle expression of sweet raspberry and redcurrant flavour finished with soft acidity. It's not excessively sweet, and delivers pleasing length of fruit and spiciness.

Bright puce; a fragrant red berry bouquet leads into a generous palate with a full suite of red fruit flavours, then a near-dry finish. Gold medal Adelaide Wine Show '10.

Smooth and juicy, intense and vibrant, with a lightly spicy bouquet of red cherries, raspberries, blueberries and red flowers. While it finishes with a measured sweetness, it's finished with a bright, racy acidity that provides genuine freshness and balance.

One of the star wines in the Angoves range, it's on the money again in 2009. Shiraz and grenache, it has a red-pink hue and plenty of perfumed red fruit aromas; strawberry and raspberry flavours rule the palate.

Bright light fuschia; grenache perfume to the fore on the bouquet; has plenty of flavour without reliance on residual sugar; needs a touch more acidity?

Most wine writers advise avoiding fairy floss pink rose. This is the exception, a delicious everyday wine with an exceptional balance of vibrant grenache and shiraz berry fruit flavours, beautifully integrated sweetness and a tangy dry finish.

An aromatic red cherry and raspberry bouquet flows into a vibrant, fresh and long palate with a dry finish. Multiple gold medals; no surprise.
