One of my favourites! Fun wine.
We’ve dabbled in rosé in the past, playing around with a multitude of varieties (Nero, Nebbiolo, Barbera, etc.) - never really committing one way or another, despite being the most requested wine style for us to add to our repertoire. (after Pet Nat of course)
But after playing with some of our Polish Hill River Sangiovese - generally destined for Truffle Hound - we, at last, have become enamoured! We’ve then backed it up with some Old Vine Grenache from the Riverland that we’ve admired from afar for many years, finally taking the plunge for rosé, then lifted with a bit of Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris that’s seen a lick of skin contact for that copper hue. In short, this is as Unico as a rosé can be - a blend of our 3 key regions, some beautiful vineyards, in our house style: fresh, vibrant and bone dry.
fresh, vibrant and bone dry. One of the things that I can dislike about rosé is that it can sometimes have a strong taste like strawberries. This one is only slightly fruity and very easy drinking. Not overly savoury but vary balanced.
When would I drink it?
All the time! This is probably the rosè I have drunk more than anything else. A total favourite. I’d recommend with the girls when you want a crisp easy drinking wine or with most light flavoured food. This isn’t a match for your hearty roast dinner or super spicy meal. It doesn’t have the body or flavour to stand up to those
A lovely dry style but full flavoured rose, that even my red drinking partner enjoyed. Sadly we corked this one, so I’ll have to order another soon.
