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.
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!
