Foster é Rocco Rosé 2011

Rosé in Australia is undergoing a real renaissance. There are those producers who seek to  retain a little residual sugar in their wines, or at least retention of fruit sweetness, and there are those practitioners who look for texture, line and length. Adam Foster and Lincoln 'Rocco' Riley are in the latter camp.

Strawberry, delicate citrus, florals, raspberry and spicy nuances greet you.  Smooth entry, textural - the delicacy of a feather, yet with sufficient weight to carry flavour. Hints of minerality, some tartness - with cranberry making an appearance. Good acidity with lovely line and length. Excellent, driving length, drying, moreish.  92 - Very Good
