Jeremy Oliver (2011 Vintage) says
Floral and waxy, this leaner, quite savoury ros‚ has a wild, slightly meaty bouquet of red berries, citrusy fruits and meaty undertones lifted by a hint of spice. It?s slightly confectionary, with a forward, juicy presence of citrus/berry fruit supported by a fine, slatey extract that tapers a little towards a clean, refreshing finish of racy acids.

Charming, long and savoury, this stylish and sophisticated rose has a dusty, floral and spicy bouquet of red cherries, ginger and cloves with waxy, earthy notes lifted by a nuances of white and orange flowers. It's lean and finely sculpted, with pristine but complex flavours of berries, cherries and citrus fruits overlying a fine chalky chassis then finishing dry and mineral, with underlying meaty notes.

Drop dead serious rose. Its dusty bouquet of raspberries, red cherries, cloves and cinnamon has a viognier-like lift and perfume, with nutty, marzipan undertones. It's long and restrained, with a smooth, gentle presence of red cherries and berries, nougat and spice underpinned by an almost fragile backbone. It finishes long and savoury, with soft acidity.

Pale orange - very pale - this estate-grade rose carries some more savoury mealy complexity, alongside dried light redcurrant, red apple, melon and sandy granite aromas. The palate has ethereal depth and texture, really smoothly sheeted and lithe, and sails long and easy through the finish.

This top-shelf take on Central Victorian rosé has a distinctly savoury, leesy-influenced nose that will strike a chord in lovers of Bandol rosé from the south of France. Super-pale colour and fine, gently fragrant red fruits, some mealy, leesy smells of fresh bread dough. Neat palate texture that transitions from start to finish in a smooth, sweeping style. Perfect for dining on fresh barbecued mussels.

Matt Skinner (2008 Vintage) says
With more than just a glancing nod to the great pink wines of France's south, this brilliant example from the Sutton Grange team is incredibly drinkable and absolutely delicious with food. From co-fermented syrah and viognier, this is a dry and savoury copper-coloured rose, where smells of baked quince, juicy red apples, hay and minerals make way for a mouthful of wine that's delicate and direct with subdued fruit, lovely acidity and a long and drying end. Drink it outdoors with antipasti.

Nick Stock (2007 Vintage) says
This is complex and lees-influenced, there's a distinct rose petal aroma too, really perfumed and cryptic, some honey and sweet wattle perfume. Terrific texture and balance, makes a bright complex impression, layered texture, gently creamy and finishing with a nutty savoury twist. Grown-up rose.
