Angove Alternatus Rosé 2016

A bit of a fruit salad of sorts here. Grenache, Tempranillo, Graciano, Carnignan (75/18/4.6/2.4) make up the blend. Credit to the wine making team for being so precise with the percentages too - bonus points for the decimals :)

All fruit came from a range of McLaren Vale sites. The Grenache and Tempranillo were co-fermented, and along with the Graciano, all spent 8 hours on skins. The Carignan was simply bled off Saignee style from a red wine ferment.

Spring time picnics here we go. Loaded with red berries and red fruit, it's a dry style Rosé that's fresh and lively with a delectable textural ripple. The fruit kicks through to a sustained finish. Chill it down hard and pour generously.

Drink now and big smiles are soon to follow.
