Mr Mick, Rosé, Clare Valley, 2021
Pale rose in colour. Musk and cherry with expected white peach, but a touch of sugar brings out a sweetness not unlike strawberry lollies with a green tobacco herbaceous quality. Okay phenolics and the sugar isn’t out of control in a lightly bodied expression. The choice of Sangiovese fruit provides a point of difference and sharp acidity through the finish. Simple, uncomplicated rosé.
Rating: 16.5/20 (86/100)
