The Hare & The Tortoise, Rosé, Yarra Valley, 2022

HandT Rose
Dusky peach to orange hue. Blood orange, just ripe strawberry hull, earthy rhubarb, dusty breakfast cereal packet, whipped double cream and a little sandalwood. Dry, savoury and offering a neat textural grip. Fruit takes an expected back seat to the structural framework with proper juicy, zingy and refreshing acidity. Designed for food.
RRP: Probably $10 a glass and $32 a bottle in your nearest bistro.
Alc: 12.5%
Rating: 17.25/20 (89/100)
