Nebbiolo is one of the best grapes for making rosato, yet there’s practically none of it made in Piedmont. This comes from a vineyard specifically planted for making rosato. Liquorice root, rosewater, white cherry – pretty little thing it is. Good flavour, dry, glycerol texture, clean finish leaving a certain juiciness and perfume in its wake. Short note. Good wine.

Light salmon-pink hue with a savoury, slightly dried-herby aroma, lightly grassy and lemony. The palate is soft and fruity, juicy and supple, with a nice dry, savoury finish and aftertaste. A firm, dry, savoury style of rosé with serious styling and a cleansing finish. I could drink plenty of this 93 points - Huon Hooke

How's it taste?

You're looking at one of the most sophisticated rosé wines in Australia. Adelaide Hills Rosato (so Italian style rosé), from the Saturno boys vineyard in the warmer end of the Adelaide Hills. Over the years this clever pink has won a whole bag of trophies for a reason - it nails the balance between flavour and delicacy

How was it made?

Appearance: Vibrant salmon pink in colour.

Nose:With delicate notes of orange peel, ripe peach and musk aromas.

Palate:The palate bursts with maraschino cherries and raspberries, then finishes with savoury, refreshing acidity. Lingering and dry; unmistakably Nebbiolo!

Who made it?

Longview is a stunning, family-owned Adelaide Hills single vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of old world estates but with a clear Australian accent, it has quickly established itself as one of the most awarded vineyards in the region since its first vintage in 2001. Operations are overseen by brothers Mark and Peter Saturno, along with a small but specialised team. They ensure the vineyard is fastidiously managed to produce the finest fruit for their premium estate grown wines and provide a wine tourism experience that has placed Longview in the South Australian Tourism 'Hall of Fame'.
