We opened 24 different rosés (as you do) and this was a runaway winner. You'll find lovely sweet berry aromas and delicious fruit and spice, with hints of barrel-ferment character, on the bone-dry palate. Perfect with Lebanese dishes. $20.

This Margaret River winery is making some excellent wines; and this is one of the best, with appealing gooseberry, lemon/lime and herbaceous characters. Fresh and lively with nice balance, this would be gorgeous with some grilled shellfish. $24.

It's rare to stumble across an Australian merlot that is exciting, but this is such a beast. From a reliably good McLaren Vale winery, it offers nice rich berry flavours, softness and persistence with plenty happening on the palate. A real find! $19.95.
