Of three Rosés tasted blind recently, this finished on top. The cheapest of the three, this possessed just a bit more fun and interest which hooked me in.
This is the second release of The Yearling Rosé after a trial batch was made in 2016. 100% estate grown Merlot the bandit here.
Winemaker Sandrine Gimon says, "Merlot is perfect for expressing the cocktail of succulent summer fruits that we wanted in the Rymill Rosé. It gives the ideal balance between juiciness and freshness and has the added benefit of an enticing pale colour." I couldn't have said it better if I tried.
Ripe strawberries, delicate creaminess flows at ease through the mouth. Fruit is nicely balanced alongside some herby influences and a dainty soft spice which ticks away beautifully. Sunday barbecues have never looked so easy. A great buy for the asking price.
