Across the board the wines of Terrace Edge are stand outs and this Rosé certainly has a vibrancy and personality that sets it apart. The vineyard is family owned and certified organic, the wine is dry in style, drinking beautifully and at a great price. What more boxes need ticking?
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"It is fabulously fruited and inviting on the nose showing ripe strawberry, nectarine, rockmelon and floral characters, followed by a beautifully weighted palate that is finely textured and vibrant. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and delightful poise, wonderfully supported by bright acidity, finishing impressively long and refreshing. At its best: now to 2022."

"Showing unusual depth, this delicious Waipara rosé is full-bodied (13.5% alc/vol), with a strong surge of fresh berry, plum and spice flavours. Fractionally sweet, with a very persistent finish, it’s certified organic."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Raymond Chan, October 2018 (2018 Vintage)
"Bright, light salmon-pink colour with a hint of cerise and purple on the rim. The nose is softly full with fresh fruit aromas of strawberries and quince with raspberry elements, unfolding subtle savoury and spicy red florals with berry nuances, and a suggestion of confectionery. A steely thirst-quenching mineral element adds vitality. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has vibrant and rich flavours of strawberries, quince and raspberries harmoniously interwoven, unfolding savoury red berry fruit and floral notes and hints of confectionery. The flavours form a rich, succulent heart with good depth, which is balanced by fine, mouthwatering acidity. The flavours carry to a lingering finish. This is a rich and vibrant medium-dry rosé with lush flavours of strawberries, quince and raspberries, florals and hints of confectionery, on a mouthwatering palate. Match with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. 100% Syrah fruit, given 4 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 8 g/L RS, the wine undergoing batonnage. Certified BioGro Organic."
