Straight up, I have to say, when I saw the colour of this Rosé I thought, this is going to have some attitude. I mean, it has a serious yet lovely, deep-ish copper colour (the photo doesn’t do it justice). When I tasted it and discovered that, yes, there was intent, boldness, and body, it proved to be in the ‘good attitude’ realm thanks to an overarching freshness across the palate. There’s generosity of flavour from a bundle of red berries, a nice soft spiciness and texture, and good ‘weight’ to it too while finishing long and dry. This is not a ‘shrinking violet’ of a Rosé but it maintains its appeal as a refreshing, year-round, chillaxing style of wine.
