Risky Business, Pinot Noir Rosé, Western Australia, 2018
I mentioned it last vintage and again now: the colour is closer to a dusky rose/pale salmon (just) than the bottle image suggests. Chalky, dusty, cherries and red currant with light musk stick aromas, a hint of Campari orange too. The palate delivers a savoury and lightly textured experience with solid depth of delicate pink and red fruits with a hint of ripe peach on the finish. A tasty, dry rosé as a good match for charcuterie and antipasti.
