Hentley Farm Rosé 2016

Rosé in the Barossa has been a stalwart and those producers who have been quietly plugging away are now reaping the benefits of the recent rosé revolution.

Hentley Farm Rosé, Barossa Valley 2016

24 hours of skin contact. Bright cerise/ cherry red suggesting grenache dominance (indeed, the accompanying tech sheet states 85/15 split between grenache and shiraz). Mixed red berries on the nose and a good whack of meaty spice. Fruit sweet up front, but not confected nor cloying. Red berries and even some pink peppercorn spice. The acidity balances the red fruit profile beautifully and there’s a hint of juicy residual sugar at the finish. A quality rosé.

RRP: $21.50
Alc: 12%
