Spinifex Rose 2010

A blend of Mataro, Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz (45/25/23/7%) and a glorious pale pink.  There are certain things that you eat or drink that have the ability to transport you.  This, despite hailing from the Barossa takes me to a hillside villa in Provence, overlooking a field of lavender gently snaking in the breeze.

Its aromas of rose and even a touch of the ubiquitous boiled sweet lead you into a mid-weight palate, where some spice makes way for a dry and savoury finish.

Dangerously chuggable, though one has to advocate responsible consumption lest you start dreaming too much about that Provencale hillside villa.
