Mike Bennie - The Wine Front

Strawberry, yoghurty notes, whiff of vanilla. Light and creamy texture, stern line of saline acidity driving long through the wine. White strawberry, green-red fruitiness, crisp to finish. Tightly wound, light-on style here. Delicate and delicious. Pair with fruit salad.

Wine Spectator

The dried raspberry, lemon curd and Asian pear flavors are crisp and detailed, with notes of white flowers, five-spice powder and toast leading to a long, lingering, juicy finish. Offers an appealing mix of power and finesse. Drink now.

This biodynamic producer has carved a reputation out of crafting top-notch bubbly and this hand riddled, ballerina-pink rosé doesn't disappoint. It wafts ripe strawberries and cream, cherry pie and some soft spice in the background. Bubbles are lively, lifting the ripe fruit and creamy texture and turning this into a quaffable glass of refreshment.

Strawberry-brioche and vanilla sponge-cake aromas make for an enticing pink fizz. The palate has a smooth texture and gently nutty, pastry flavors ahead of raspberries and strawberries. From organically grown grapes.

Jane Faulkner - The Age

Quartz Reef is vignerons Rudi Bauer's label a leading light in Central Otago's winemaking scene and a thoughtful winemaker. He's making some seriously good sparkling, too, such as this pinot noir non-vintage rose that has an enticing vibrant cherry hue and plenty of long-lasting bead. It's loaded with ripe, red fruits- think raspberries and strawberries, plus spice notes; really concentrated and rich, with a bit of a pinot noir tannic grip on the long finish, perfectly balancing the wine. Not an aperitif style, this is a rose with oomph.
