Sometimes I yawn at Shiraz based Rosés…which just goes to show I can be a bit of a tosser. This is made saignée style, although I should probably say salasso style because that’s where the name comes from. Italian for “bleeding the juice”.
Red apple and cherry with wild strawberries, hints of black pepper and forest-like notes. Savoury palate weight and it carries it with ease. Rolls out with class – a little creamy from old oak and lees – then glides through the back-palate with purpose and poise. No mimicry here. When they made this they broke the mold. 93 Very Good – Excellent
