Yalumba ‘Y Series’ South Australia Sangiovese Rosé 2018

Rose from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Oct-2018
Bright, pale salmon-pink with a little depth, very light on the rim. The nose is bright and fresh with subtle notes of red florals and strawberries with pomegranate elements, along with mouthwatering minerals. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate has an elegantly rich-fruited core with subtle flavours of red berry fruits, red florals, watermelon and pomegranate. The flavours form a taut line with slippery acidity. The wine carries to a delicately nuanced, moderately lingering finish. This is an elegant, subtle but bright-fruited dry rosé in the southern French style with red fruits, florals and pomegranate on a fine and slippery palate. Serve as an aperitif and with canapés over the next 2 years. Fruit from the ‘Gomersal’ and ‘Penrice’ vineyards in the Barossa Valley, along with Riverland fruit and a portion from the company’s Wrattonbully vineyard, given 1-3 hours skin contact and indigenous yeast fermented in stainless-steel to 11.5% alc. and 1.7 g/L RS. Winemaker: Sam Wigan. 17.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $16.95
