Irvine Spring Hill Primitivo Rosé 2018



It's winter time here in south-east Queensland yet the outside temperature sits around 22 degrees with blue skies a prominent feature. A glass of this in hand in the gorgeous sunshine would be picture perfect.


Soft fruit, I'm yet to see a Primitivo Rosé handled as well as this. Usually a big and bulky wine, the fruit has been softened magnificently. Whiffs of tangelo, watermelon and red currants capture the mood. The hero throughout is undoubtedly pink grapefruit which runs a neat course swaying and swerving at ease. The fruit thins out a little but that can be overlooked very easily. A bonus point for the extra love which has gone in.

Drink now.
