"Aromatic depth with red fruits, sweet spices and cut herbs, the mouth feel finding good balance with acidity and texture plus sweet and savoury flavours."
Tony Love, The Advertiser (Aus), 6 August 2008
4 stars - "Delicate floral red fruit with a hint of sweetness balanced by crisp acidity and a flick of tannin." Click here for more.
Huon Hooke, Decanter (UK), August 2008
"A lovely, quaffable, easygoing rosť, and happily it's properly light in both colour and palate. A steal at the price. Delicate, floral, clean and grapy, with just enough tannins and acid to dry the finish after a lick of sweetness."
Huon Hooke, Australian Gourmet Traveller WINE (Aus), April/May 2008
"Few labels in Australia provide great value for money as consistently as the Y Series from Yalumba of the Barossa Valley. This appealing pink wine has a bright salmon colour and a savoury varietal nose that combines cherry, red berry and spice notes. The dry palate has an attractive plump middle and an aromatic soft finish."
Ralph Kyte Powell, The Age Epicure (Aus), 11 March 2008
"After sampling this delightful rosť, I'd jotted down a few notes including 'redolent of summer berries and ripe cherries, gentle acidity and silky texture and perfectly poised'. I was well pleased until I saw the back label which referred to rhubarb aromas. Ruhubarb? So I returned to the glass and there it was, as clear as could be. The power of suggestion in winetasting should not be underestimated. Arguably the best rosť for less than $15 in the country."
Paddy Kendler, Herald Sun (Aus), 6 February 2008
"On a warm evening, this bottle didn't last long. Simple sangiovese fruit flavours of cherry and recurrant were complemented by its fresh, dry finish. Light and very quaffable, the Yalumba Y Rose has everything a good rose requires. And it's not too heavy on the alcohol, at 12.5 per cent, which helps the overall balance of the wine."
