De Bortoli Rococo Premium Rosé NV

Rococo was an art and music period best summed up by my Year 12 music teacher as “frivolous.” The period spawned the palace of Versailles and decorative shell motifs. This wine made from Chardonnay 88%, Pinot Noir 8%, Pinot Meunier 2% and 2% “other.” Nothing too frivolous about this release…except for maybe the undisclosed 2%.

A nose of sweet musk, pink lady apple, pink lemonade, soft raspberry and red currant.  Effervescent, nebulous mousse that bursts into sherbet, rosewater and pink grapefruit with good acidity to finish. Fun, well made and crisp style to match as an aperitif with a charcuterie plate or digestif to a summer berry dessert or even a choc/raspberry ganache.

 RRP: $22

Alc: 12%
