2017 Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rosé

I’ve tried the whites in the latest releases of this series and they were incredible wines for the price. I remember reading a review about this Rosé and felt it necessary to buy a bottle and give it a try. Besides, roses are back on trend and my wife and I have been enjoying quite a few of them over the Tassie summer.

This one hits the mark on every level. Now I’m not saying it is a complex, mind blowing wine but what I can say is it will still have you wondering if you’ve been charged the right amount of coin at the checkout.

Plenty of red fruits to talk about. Strawberries, cherries and cranberries add plenty of aromas and flavours even though you wouldn’t expect that when you see the regulation salmon colour. There’s a nice bit of acid at the finish but it’s soft enough that it adds to the little bit of length this wine has without taking anything away from those really good flavours.

I’d be more than happy to pay the RRP for this wine and even at that price, it is a steal!
