Monocle by Ross Hill Wines out of Orange. Pinot Noir in Orange can be a fickle thing, but here we have a barrel fermented on solids PN Rosé.

Pale salmon to dusky rose colour. Plenty of ruby grapefruit, white cherry, cranberry, creamy almost vanilla barrel and lees influence with a leafy herbaceous note. Dry and a medium-full frame. Juicy light red fruits ticking along neatly. A little lip smacking grip through the zippy finish. Perfect for a salumi or antipasto platter.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
