Plantagenet Omrah Rose

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Think pink and drink pink as this wine style has begun to captivate a whole wave of new wine drinkers who don’t necessarily want to drink red or white wine. If you are heading out to a picnic or just your local BYO make sure you chill one of these to perfection first. Its full of lively red fruits on the nose before continuing on to the palate delivering vivid red berries, crunchy, clean acids and a mouth-watering finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: A vibrant pink.

Nose: A vibrant wine reminiscent of strawberry compote and bramble berry aromas.

Palate: Textural and dry with red fruits flavours overlaid with savoury notes from barrel fermentation and lees stirring. Completed with a long and crisp red-apple finish.

Food: Cured meats, crayfish salad, smoked salmon and ripe strawberries or crusty bread and salads with plenty of fresh herbs, garlic and olive oil.

Cellaring: Drink now until 2015.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Grape Variety: The 2013 Omrah Rosé is a blend of three red grape varieties; Tempranillo, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. The vibrant colour comes from light contact with the skins during crushing. The Tempranillo, a native Spanish grape, provides the wine’s delightful fragrance and red fruit flavours, the Pinot lends elegance and the Shiraz gives this wine a fresh juiciness.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Made from tempranillo plus a small amount of shiraz. Pale pink, it has more attitude and length than many contemporary Roses; red cherry and strawberry flavours are lifted by the citrussy acidity on the dry, lingering finish.
