Freeman 'Rondo' Rondinella Rose 2019 (Prunevale, NSW) "...cherry, cranberry, spice..."
‘Brian Freeman – a former university wine science professor – is doing remarkable things with his eclectic Hilltops vineyard.' HUON HOOKE
"Freeman produce excellent rose, bettered by the use of Italian varieties that seem simpatico with the style. Also, super lovely people. Prunevale feels like an iconic place (the vineyard/winery/farmland Freeman occupies). Pound for pound right up there with best value-best rose from Australia (or anywhere?!)
"It’s a bit of a favourite around here. This is another excellent release. It has intensity, style and length but, as if it needs anything more, what I really like is the way it combines flavour with friskiness; it’s mouth watering without being overtly lean. It’s a dry, spicy style with perfume and fruit."
