Picnic is Howard Vineyard's more approachable wine range, and the wines are always good drinks - real summer propositions for immediate drinking pleasure.
This rosé is such a lovely savoury drink too, balancing out some of the strawberry fruit we like to see with a fresh palate. Dry, but not too dry, and very easy to drink.

Expert Reviews

92 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitOffering pristine fruit aromas of raspberry, cranberry and crunchy apple with a lovely floral overtone, the wine shows bright fruit flavours and delicate texture backed by vibrant acidity. It’s light, refreshing and very friendly. At its best: now to 2021. AU$25.00

How's it taste?

Luscious on the palate with hints of strawberry, blueberry, roses and spring flowers. Flavours of ripe berries. Notes of floral and herbs balance the bright acidity and mouth-watering dry finish.

How was it made?

Made from Merlot 46%, Cabernet Sauvignon 35%, Cabernet Franc 18. Picked at night to ensure minimum colour pick-up, 6 hours on skins from picking to fully pressed off. Varieties were picked separately, cold fermented and assembled to make the Picnic Blend.

Who made it?

In 1890, Amos William Howard discovered subterranean clover thriving naturally in a picturesque valley in the Adelaide Hills. Howard Vineyard’s stone barn Cellar Door and premium red vineyard are located in Nairne, on the site of this original farm. Subterranean clover continues to grow at this site, restoring Nitrogen and ensuring the health and quality of the soil in this spectacular vineyard. 30km away, their high altitude (470m), cool climate white vineyard at Schoenthal (“Beautiful Valley” in German) is one of the Adelaide Hill’s finest sites for growing fresh, crisp Sparkling and white wines. It is these two unique vineyard sites that enable them to grow exceptional white and red grapes without compromise, and the Estate grown Picnic, Clover and Amos wines are renowned for their delicate notes and distinctive fruit purity. The winery is headed up by Tom Northcott. Tom oversees all vineyard and winemaking operations and his philosophy is simple; to make textural, cool climate wines that are light and elegant with a finesse that reflects the terroir of our vineyards.

My friends often ask me, “How do you know which wine to pick?” To be honest to comes down to a range of factors; the occasion, the people, the food or even just what mood I’m in. But one of the things I love is when I try something new or slightly different to what I’d normally drink and it blows me away. Here are a few wines that I’ve recently uncovered:
