Angullong Fossil Hill Rosé

The best rosé doesn’t necessarily have to come from France; in fact, we believe it comes from New South Wales. Renowned for being one of the best Australian rosé wines, Angullong Fossil Hill Rosé is light in texture, and teeming with red berry fruits and touches of musk. It smells like an Australian summer, offering floral aromas hugged by citrusy undertones, with a palate that surprises with every sip. It is the perfect aperitif before a bustling multi-course meal or a wonderful accompaniment to a cheese platter.

This is a French rosé without the hefty price tag. And it’s made in Provence!

The palate is light and crisp, rolling over the tongue with frivolity, and ending on a smooth finish.
