A fresher, less divisive style of rosé this vintage. It’s 80% Shiraz and 20% Nebbiolo.
Still subdued and savoury, white cherries, light creaminess and florals, a little struck match and spice. Leave it in the glass to warm up long enough, and I swear you can smell licorice. Soft, gently chalky texture, just enough flavour, and a finish that positively pulsates. Fresh strawberry comes through in the aftertaste. Crisp. Pretty hard to stop drinking. Serve cool, not cold.
