The first big review of our newly released NV Sparkling Rosé was eagerly awaited at Nocton Vineyard and it doesn’t come much bigger than Tyson Stelzer’s Australian Sparkling Wine Report. Thanks Tyson; not only for a very kind review, but for your incredible support of Tasmanian wine in general.

Nocton has fast established a coveted position among Tasmania’s sparkling cognoscenti and its inaugural rosé seals its place. It’s an elegant style of pretty pale salmon hue, celebrating Coal River Valley pinot noir in highlights of strawberry hull, red apple, beetroot and musk, finishing with well-tuned balance between fine phenolic structure, fresh acidity and subtle dosage.
