I’m going to leave it to Grandis Wines owner/winemaker Shannon Burgess-Moore:
“This rosé is more than a sum of it’s parts a wine style that is normally stripped back and manipulated for Instagram ‘celebrities’ and wine influencers to have that look so desired by marketing teams. Not for us we wanted texture, weight & mouthfeel the perfect food & friends wine we don’t need you to take beauty shots and put it on your profile we want photos with sauce prints and empty bottles.”
100% Hunter Valley Merlot from the Deane Vineyard.
Grandis Wines, Unearthed Rosé, Merlot, Hunter Valley, 2021
Dusky pale rose in colour. Comforting white chocolate, white cherry and plum with a flinty steely spine and light spearmint herbals. Round and circular palate with an easy buttery richness to the texture and sharp counterpoints. Refreshing and vibrant with a dry, calm finish.
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
