Angove Nine Vines Grenache Shiraz Rosé 2017

The Nine Vines Grenache Shiraz Rosé first hit the shelves 15 years ago. In that period it has amassed 15 trophies amongst and a host of medals. This 2017 release delivers again with a sure to please style. Ripping value for $16!

A 68/32 blend, this screams for a lazy picnic, a day at the beach, a bbq or even have as an aperitif.

Raspberry sorbet and rhubarb aromas move to strawberry and cherry flavours in the mouth. It's dry but more of a fruit driven style than savoury Rosé. It feels 'skinsy' to use a word, perhaps slippery is more apt. A pinch of pepper lingers on a long and moreish finish. Serve ice cold with big pours.

Drink now.
