2019 Golden Grove Estate Rosé Brosé

I may be going over old ground here but, I think I’ve mentioned a few times now that, in my opinion, the best varieties to use for Rosé are Shiraz, Sangiovese, Grenache and Cabernet Franc.  How chuffed was I to read that three out of the four are featured in this Rosé.  It’s like Ray Costanzo, the winemaker, and I are Bro’s.

Right off the bat are aromas of bright and inviting red fruits that are the stars here and it’s already saying, “I’m your summer lunch time wine” even before we hit Spring!

Strawberries, red currants and some green apple like acidity combine for quite a mouthwatering palate.  The 34% Sangiovese and 23% Grenache happily lived in barrels while they fermented plus, with a couple of months on lees, there’s texture and a really nice dimension to the wine.  There’s a lovely dry but fruity finish to look forward to and, to cap it all off, it’s only 20 bucks!  You know what you need to do.
