This marks a return to the tried and true for Quails’ Gate and their hugely popular Rose. Last year’s vintage was an outlier and not what I expected and frankly I didn’t enjoy it as much. Having just tasted the 2019 I’m a happy to declare Quails’ Gate is back. A beautiful pale pink with an aroma of summer flowers giving way to flavours of berries and a slice of watermelon. Crispy and dry with good acidity and a terrific finish. It’s also a great buy. This is a classic rose style and will be the perfect dinner companion all summer long.
