This $5.50 rosé has just won a prestigious wine award

Fresh & Fruity Rosé won the Winestate Best Value Wine 2019

A rosé priced at less than $6 a bottle has been presented the prestigious Winestate Best Value Wine 2019 award at the Winestate Wine of the Year Awards in Adelaide.

Fresh & Fruity Rosé 2018 costs just $5.50 a bottle and was chosen from a field of finalists over 12 months of blind tastings.

The winning drop is available exclusively at Liquorland, First Choice and Vintage Cellars stores Australia-wide.

The shiraz and grenache blend rosé was described by the judging panel as a delicate, dry and elegant pink wine with floral fruit fragrances and an appealing zippy fresh palate.

Winestate Chief Executive Office Peter Simic said that it is uncommon for such a reasonably priced rosé to receive results of this calibre.

“A rosé that achieves a four-star result should be considered a very good wine! A panel of three expert peer winemaker judges independently selected this wine as the Winestate Best Value Buy Wine of the Year, and it is definitely a worthy recipient,” he said.

Fresh & Fruity Rosé 2018 is available exclusively at Liquorland, Vintage Cellars, First Choice Liquor and First Choice Liquor Market.
