2017 Taylors ‘Taylor Made’ Pinot Noir Rosé

We are well into Autumn.  The days are getting shorter, afternoons are getting cooler but that’s no excuse for not drinking Rosé.  You have to remember Rosé is just as much a food friendly wine as it is a warm summer day wine.  When there are examples like this one, take a bottle to your favourite Asian restaurant in the middle of winter.  You’ll be doing yourself a favour.

The colour is a salmon pink, almost coppery, which is a good start for me.  Bearing in mind this is a Pinot Noir Rosé the aromas came as no surprise.  Strawberries, fresh, off the plant, out of a punnet.  You name it.  Unmistakable.

There were no surprises when drinking this either.  Strawberries again playing the major role with cherries in support and a subtle spicy note adding some balance to the fruit flavours.  Now, here’s the thing that will surprise you.  It seems quite soft and smooth on the palate yet has a flavour hit that has you coming back for more.  The other thing I like about it is, it finishes dry but with some of that flavour hanging around in support.  Very nice, moreish and easy to drink.
