Glen Garvald by Levantine Hill Rosé 2020

These new Glen Garvald wines from Levantine Hill are focused on using varieties uncommon to the Yarra Valley. I must admit, I did a double-take when I saw the makeup of this wine. Apart from Pinot Noir, I thought I was in McLaren Vale.

A blend of Grenache, Pinot Noir, Carignan and Shiraz, Rhone varieties are married with Pinot Noir. It's a considered, thought-provoking Rosé. Don't drink it too cold either or the beauty will be masked.

Onion skin appearance, it's so pretty on the eye. Rhubarb, dried cranberries and craisins, even some quince waft around to entice.

Basil and the white bit of the watermelon to taste, there's a spicy rub through the mouth that lingers long. A sprinkle of black pepper on close a neat parting gift. So savoury. So delish. Give me another!

Drink now.
