Ned Goodwin - Halliday's Wine Companion

Hewn of a base of '16: 55% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir, in addition to older reserves (15%), this is a gorgeous salmon hue flecked with amber. Gentle scents of crushed strawberry, loganberry and a thread of herb are woven by a needle of vibrant acidity and mineral crunch. Subtle, refined stuff. Just enough toast. Dosage nestled in. This attests to Deviation Road being among Australia's very top sparkling wine producers.

This is one of Australia's best Non Vintage rosé sparkling wines, really impressive. Pale salmon and packed with bright pink fruits, this has a handy mix of primary and more savory complex characters. Strawberries, spicy red cherries and gently earthy mushroom aromas lead to a palate that has attractive pastry-like flavors and, pink grapefruit and pink berry fruits, chalky, tingly and fresh. Great balance and plenty of flavor, dosage is perfectly judged, drink now.

David Sly - Decanter

An elegant but serious rosé with Pinot Noir adding structure and Chardonnay the vibrancy. Wild strawberry sharpness leads in light cherry and melon, while solid acidity keeps all the flavours lingering long and bright. It’s weighty but still delightfully playful.

Earthy, gravelly and savoury, with bright strawberries, cherries, raspberries and citrusy notes backed by hints of game meat and creamy, yeasty notes; soft and charming.

An attractive red-fruity edge to the nose with notes of flowers and strawberries, leading to a palate that has approachable red-fruit sweetness and a fluffy, bright and light texture. Drink young.

Huon Hooke - The Real Review

Light, fresh salmon-pink colour, the bouquet holds aromas of nettles and dried herbs, smoky strawberry and pot-pourri. The palate is crisp, clean and refined, intense and beautifully balanced, clean and dry to close. Musk and rose petal nuances. It's refreshing and more-ish, a lovely wine. Good intensity and persistence. The complete package.

Mike Bennie - The Wine Front

Made by Hamish and Kate Laurie at their Adelaide Hills winery, fruit is sourced from Lenswood vineyards, in parcels, to produce this wine. Some red wine specifically produced for blending, is blended back into it to make it blush. Pretty pink colour, well, that’s the idea, with stone fruit and red cherry aromas. It’s tangy and zippy across the palate, crisp to finish and light in flavour without detracting from the overall appeal. Some strawberry sweetness creeps in, bead is foamy and coarse, good fresh flavours linger. Nicely put together, good to drink albeit a simpler expression of rose here.
