Howard Vineyard Picnic Rose

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Made from a blend of cabernets, this playful Rose is off-dry in style (just a touch of sweetness, folks!), and shows red berry and cherry smells on the nose, along with whiffs of leafiness. The palate is lighter-bodied and refreshing, with a hit of sweetness upfront, followed by red fruit flavours, bright acidity, and a thirst-quenching finish. Perfect for what else but a family picnic in the local national park.

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2012 Picnic Rose is a new addition to the Howard family. This cheeky wine is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Cabernet Franc. A gorgeous bright salmon colour, the aromas scream of cherry, strawberry and white nectarines. The palate is fresh and lively with an abundance of red cherries and strawberries, finishing with crisp acidity. Perfect for a Picnic!
