West Cape Howe Mount Barker Rosé 2018

A new (attractive) label and wine from the West Cape Howe team. Made by the saignée (bleeding off) method.

West Cape Howe, Shiraz, Rosé, Mount Barker, 2018

Pale garnet: Fresh, and inviting nose: clean linen, light rose petal, fleshy red currant, pink peppercorns, white chocolate.  Textured and dry. The palate crisp, yet carries enough weight to make this a serious expression. Quality red fruit with a brassy tang and a good balanced line of acidity running long through the tail.

RRP $22
Alc: 13%
Rating: 17.75/20
