SANGIOVESE ROS… 2020 McLaren Vale, South Australia
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer THE HEDONIST
Here is a rather unique organic 100% Sangiovese McLaren Vale rosť that is well worth a detour. What distinguishes it from some many competitors is the depth of flavour, attractive ripe fruit and surprisingly rich mouthfeel. It has a very bright light salmon pink colour and an alluring, ripe, raspberry-fruit-tinged nose with hints of red apple and lime. Dry medium to medium-light bodied, well balanced, expressive, faintly spicy, ripe, raspberry-melon flavours was lingering, crisp, fresh finish. Right on - itís a versatile, ready-to-drink, crowd-pleaser with 12.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with a screwcap closure. CSPC 668442

TASTING NOTE: The beginning of 2020 was marked by terrible fires in Australia; McLaren Vale was one of the regions that was spared. This McLaren Vale rosť is made from 100% Sangiovese, famous for the Brunello and Chianti wines of Tuscany. In Australia, experiments with the grape are creating outstanding wines. This one is elegant and classy, with ripe red fruit and crisp acidity. Price $ 19.95
