Bimbadgen Rose 2012

This is a Rosé with some funk factor.

Predominantly Hunter Valley Shiraz with a dollop of Gewurztraminer from Orange, the two work splendidly together.

Bright in appearance, a bit like bright red cordial, I loved the aromatics which presented watermelon, a light dusting of cinnamon spice, lifted raspberry and strawberry. The Gewurztraminer chimed in delivering a gorgeous rose water element. All this before taking a sip!

A very easy drinking wine and there is plenty of fruity goodness on the palate. Gentle spice from the Shiraz on exit adds another dimension to the soft flavours which linger considerably, with a slight drying finish.

Shiraz has never hit it off with me when made into a Rosé, but perhaps this has converted me. For the $16, this is smokin' good value. Better still, Bimbadgen club members are offered discounts which drags this down to $12! Whoa!!

Get some and enjoy!
