Down The Lane Rosé Gris de Gris 2016

The label mentions this is “just like Gris de Gris,” so made in the style of rosé from Corbières rather than Provence, (but could be a confusing statement if you didn’t know that). Comprised of Pinots Noir and Gris. Part of the new “edgy” line up from De Bortoli aimed at celebrating the “lane way culture.”  Riverina, King Valley and Yarra Valley provide the fruit sources for the new range. Winemaker is John Coughlan

Down the Lane, Rosé, Gris de Gris, SEA, 2016

Pink Lady apple core, cherry, strawberry  yoghurt from lees contact,  torn spearmint leaves, berry coulis. Subtle and delicate palate with light strawberry, rose petal and a metallic tang. Add food and this works well but feels otherwise restrained.

RRP: $12
Alc: 12%
