Made with Shiraz (36.5%) from the noted Freeman vineyard in Hilltops and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon from Gundog’s Wallaroo vineyard in the Canberra region. 24 hours skin contact. Vegan Friendly if that’s important to you.
Gundog Estate, Rosé, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, NSW, 2021
Medium cerise with a soft cherry glow. Steely notes first before tropical papaya, raspberry fruit and raspberry slice, white chocolate, clove, salted watermelon and a touch of meaty blood. Chasing the “Provence” style, it achieves textural goals while not forsaking flavour. A touch of residual sugar keeps the edges round and offers generosity. Plenty of depth and personality.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
