Villa Tonino Rosé Blend 2008
The Tortoise Hill range derives its name from one of Glen Carlou’s most distinctive landmarks: a rocky hill in the shape of a giant tortoise. Created to add quality and enjoyment to contemporary living, the two vibrantly fruity wines are backed by the Glen Carlou promise of consistent quality. This wine is a rich strawberry pink with a hint of cranberry red. On the nose there's delicate rose petal aromas, ripe raspberry and cherry - very clean and fresh. On the palate soft acidity balances the clean dark fruit and ripe watermelon flavours. The finish is soft and dry with lingering dark berry fruits. A lovely light aperitif wine, enjoyed by itself or with a summer salad.

This wine showed rich red fruits, yeasty baking bread and pepper on the nose. Juicy raspberry but not much else on the palate and a little dry on the finish. In comparison to the previous vintage, this wine falls short on both body and depth. Very drinkable and good for the price but not a repeat purchase for me.
Syrupy legs, apple, medium body and texture. Somewhat grassy like NZ Sauv Blanc and somewhat whole mouth feel like Calif Chard.

External Reviews for Villa Tonino Rosé Blend
Color: dark red color. Nose: intense nose with notes of black berries and spicy aromas like pepper. Mouth: This medium to full-bodied wine is still yet very fresh and elegant and allies unctuous tannins to flavors or red and black berries with a touchspice.
Fresh, dry, and approachable, this rosé is made by a talented mother-daughter team. You'll love their style; travel to the south of France and you'll find the locals drinking rosés just like this one.
The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc Reserva is a great value. It exhibits a fragrant bouquet of mineral, passion fruit, and citrus. This leads to a mouth-watering, vibrant, lengthy Sauvignon that way over-delivers for its humble price. Tabali is producing high quality wines from the newly developing cool-climate region of Limari.
This lively red shows black cherry and coffee flavors - fresh, clean and balanced. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
