Rogers & Rufus Grenache Rosé 2016

Massive chug factor here. Sunshine and long lunches here we go. Mind you, I had a couple of glasses of this with winemaker Sam Wigan to kick start dinner and the bowl of fries we shared matched ideally too.

Made from Grenache, 60% was made in twelve year old oak. Onion skin like in appearance with a faint copper hue, no sulfur was added to this in the vineyard, only prior to blending.

Fresh, savoury and bone dry, it hits and sticks to the middle palate. Textural, pink grapefruit and white raspberry flavours scatter about. There's a mild creaminess too which I liken to one of those white chocolate and raspberry ice creams I've had. Yum! Super low acidity, chill it down hard and pour generously.

Very good.
