“Really rather fragrant and supple with rather refined tannin. Very intensely fruity and spicy, with a scented long finish” – International Wine Challenge 2012 judges commenting on Rocha Rosa 2012 which won a Bronze Award.
“The Rocha Rosa 2009 has a strong pungent nose, powerful palate, rich luscious, strong tannins, good balance and well made all in harmony. Medium to long length” – Patrick Rosen, Smart Wines.
“The Rocha Rosa 2010 is a powerful concentrated wine with peppery spice and hints of damson fruit, with chewy rich tannins” – Andrew Corben-Clarke, Burgundy Portfolio.
“More floral violet character. Palate has dark spice, earthy, roasted chestnuts, grippy but fine tannins. Ripe. Cedar and some toast evident but integrated. Liquorice twist adds complexity leading to a long finish. Some heat on the finish” – Decanter Asia World Wine Awards 2012 judge commenting on the Rocha Rosa 2009..
