Jay scored this wine: 88/100
Always a fantastic value!
Deep crimson in colour. Medium to full bodied with black cherry and berry, complimented by wood and olive notes.
Jay scored this wine: 84/100
Not quite what I was expecting. A little bit lean and lacking the flavours of berries I associate with quality rose.

Some real crowd-pleasing pink stuff here from Gran Feudo, Gorgeous color, matched with pleasing flavours of strawberry and white grapefruit. Great value.
Jay scored this wine: 90/100
A complex rose, smacking the palate with notes of red berries, Chelan cherry, a hit of rhubarb and some herbs de Provence.
Jay scored this wine: 89/100
A delicious, bright and cherry rose. A big waft of strawberry fields hits the nose, and those berries, along with some citrus show up on the palate.
Many to choose from, for different reasons. Top 5 (in no real order), 1995 Krug Clos du Mesnil, 2001 Amon-Ra, 2005 Rollingdale Pinot Gris Icewine, 1990 Vega Sicilia, 1995 Moulin Touchais
When I was 17, my cousin gave me a taste of '92 Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay, and '85 Batasiolo Barolo. Both were revelations.
Picking icewine grapes in the middle of the night in -15 weather.
Reds from the Barossa and Langhorne Creek regions still own my wine heart.
