Aaron Mercer reaches to the cooler New South Wales region of Hilltops for this, his flagship rosato. Vegan friendly.
Mercer Wines, Nebbiolo, Rosato, Hilltops, 2021
Pale salmon, peachy sunset in colour. Attractive nose of blood orange, white cherry, white pepper, easy raspberry and with a slightly seared meaty depth. Offering plenty of depth and structure over many others that attempt this style. The fruit up front delivers a smooth entry before tightening dead straight and precise. Deliciously dry and textural with a long finish. Serious rosé.
Rating: 18.25/20 (93/100)
