Most Rosé are released in the year of making, thus this is somewhat of an anomaly from Chateau Tanunda. Released almost 2 years after vintage and in clear glass. Made from Pinot Noir grown in the Barossa (certainly not the first red variety one thinks of for the region).
Chateau Tanunda, Grand Barossa, Dry Rosé, Pinot Noir, Barossa, 2021
Dusky pale salmon hue. Light strawberry, raspberry and stone fruit skin nose with just a touch of leafy nuance. Crisp, fresh and direct. Straight down the line with textural summer red fruits and balanced zesty acidity. Nothing over the top nor insipid, just a well put together expression.
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
