2019 Pig in the House Organic Rosé

Are you familiar with a Chicago (the band) song, “If you leave me now”?  Not far into the start of it you hear one singular ‘ding’ of a triangle (a very under-rated percussion instrument).  You don’t hear it again for the duration of the song but it is a significant part regardless.  Well, this wine, made from Sangiovese grapes, has 0.6% Shiraz in the mix.  Even though it is but a small percentage, the Shiraz still plays its triangle part in this easy to drink Rosé and plays it in a nice subtle rather than significant way.

The aromas of this wine are the perfect prelude to what presents on the palate.  Nice ripe strawberries, raspberries and red cherries.  It has a smooth creamy texture with a bit of extra mid palate feel thanks to that splash of Shiraz I reckon.  It’s dry and a little bit savoury as the flavour continues through on a medium length finish where just a hint of acidity adds crispness if you like.

This has everything going for it and is bound to be a winner.  It’s organic with plenty of flavour, there’s freshness, it’s perfectly food friendly and easy drinkability.  Let’s not forget the attractive price!  Let’s hope this is bottled every year…please!!
