So apparently it’s International Rosé Day! (4th Friday of each June). Blue Pyrenees create their rosé from Pinot Noir and Merlot, with the winemaking including maturation on lees for 6 months. Evocative packaging.
Blue Pyrenees Estate, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Bone Dry Rosé, Pyrenees, 2019
Pale, almost translucent bronze/onion skin in colour. Initial round red fruit aromas, with spice and white cherry. There’s a touch of herbaceous ashen leaf and a meaty, almost dry roasted pork complexity. Tight, dry and just medium bodied. Pen-light beam focused long palate with a crisp, bone dry refreshing finish.
Rating: 17.5/20 (91/100)
