Yelland & Papps Delight Rosé 2012

A mix of Grenache (71%) for aromatics, spice and all round gluggability; Mataro (29%) for depth and body.  Simply fruited, light-on aromatics with strawberry, cranberry and hints of bubblegum fruit character.

Clean entry, more hints of strawberry filling out the palate.  Boiled lolly character, essentially dry but fruit sweetness enlivens the palate along with some citrus juiciness.  Easy drinking, one for chilling and supping around the pool. 

Misses the mark for me with a lack of texture - one thing the revolution has given me a feel for.  88 - Good
