Jacob’s Creek ‘Le Petit Rosé’ 2017

This is a new wine for Jacob’s Creek in Australia to fulfil the growing rosé category. It is inspired by the winemaking style of the rosé wines of Provence in southern France. Winemaker Trina Smith says that "with the popularity [of the rosé class] has come a greater appreciation for the different styles and flavours that can be produced”. This wine a Jacob’s Creek’s interpretation of French rosé. Here is my review. www.jacobscreek.com

Jacob’s Creek ‘Le Petit Rosé Australia 2017
Bright, very pale salmon-pink colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is very delicate with light and subtle, but fresh aromas of white stonefruits with nuances of red berry fruit and red florals, and a thirst-quenching minerality. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has a tight, mouthwatering core of white stonefruits with a suggestion of red fruits and florals, along with mineral nuances. The mouthfeel is bright and zesty, and the wine flows along a fine-textured, dry line, leading to a crisp, minerally finish. This is a crisp, zesty, delicately flavoured dry rosé with stonefruit flavours and suggestions of red fruits and florals, with a mouthwatering, minerally finish in the Provence rosé style. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. A blend of Pinot Noir, Grenache and Mataro, cool-fermented to 12.4% alc. 17.0/20 Oct 2017 RRP $16.99
