Liv Zak, Rosé, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2018
Pale rose gold colour. Some reductive notes before white and red cherry, cold strawberry, velvety musk, light ripe stonefruit and dustiness akin to coloured chalk. A touch of roundness to the palate with good depth and structure. No shrinking petal this one. Textural and bright with the right amount of savoury balance to the fruit with a fine cut of acidity. A bottle of this and a plate of tuna tataki, please.
