If you’re charging $35 for a rosé in this day and age, it needs to be serious and a focused wine. Not just enough to be the cash cow from a bleed off of the fermenting grapes.
Bird On A Wire, Rosé, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2018
A darkly coloured rose in clear glass. Crisp, smoky and woody stalk aromas over deep strawberry and cherry red fruits. Deep blood orange and sweet brown spice finish a complex set of aromas. Medium bodied, there’s a rich interplay of juicy fruit and savoury meaty components. Dry, with depth of bloody carpaccio meats and ferrous elements before a clippy finish of burnt citrus and fleshy cherry. A serious rosé indeed.
