2017 Mérite Merlot Rosé

I have been really enjoying drinking rosé lately.  The same can be said for the other person that lives under the same roof as me, my wife.  Out of the two of us, she can be the thorn in your rosé if you serve up a dud.  I have no hesitation in saying that no rosé coloured glasses were needed for this one.

It’s quite a pretty colour.  Sits between the pink-ish colour that’s not unexpected for a rosé to a coppery colour of a skinsy pinot gris.  Aromas are all red fruits with a hint of sweetness but are subtle, delicate and inviting.

When you taste this rosé, you are going to be more than surprised for one that is merlot based.  It has all the bright red fruits like strawberries, ripe cranberries and juicy plums but there’s depth on the palate and texture too.  Tannins play a part that you wouldn’t expect in a rosé yet they are nicely played here.  It’s delicious, no two ways about it.  Well priced too.

We are really enjoying riding on the Rosé Revolution train that’s selling heaps of tickets and stopping at many stations around Australia.
