“Pale salmon colour. Vibrant and citrusy on the palate. Lingering finish.” – Emma Fogarty

“A good food wine with great balance of flavour, fine soft tannin and acid on the lingering finish.” – Christine Ricketts

“This has that Turkish Delight character on the nose that I love in rosé. Palate is tight and driven.” – Mark Bradstreet
