Vino Intrepido The Sharpest Thorn Rosé 2019

This rosé is made from Sangiovese grapes, grown in Heathcote, Central Victoria.
When I read the name, I can’t help but sing “The Shortest Straw” by Metallica, but Vino Intrepido’s James Scarcebrook explains: “There is a saying that goes something like, “the most beautiful rose can have the sharpest thorn”. Much like the name for my pinot grigio, the image I was attempting to convey was that though this is a lovely pretty and bright rosé it is dry and has a bit of bite to it. It also means that no matter how perfect something may seem there is always another side to it.”

Vino Intrepido, The Sharpest Thorn Rosé, Sangiovese, Heathcote, 2019

Pale rose gold/deep peach hue. Lightly fragrant: dill, cherry, strawberry, hay bales and just sliced charcuterie meatiness. Carrying depth and grip, this has a focus on texture and structure with understated, but quality fruit and fine earthy spice.

RRP: $27.99
Alc: 12.8%
Rating:  18/20 (92/100)
