Yalumba 2012 Y Series Sangiovese Rosé

Not the palest, not the most textural, nor savoury - it's dry and, for this author, a pleasure to drink.  That's what counts right?  You'll find it on shelves for anywhere between a tenner and its $15 RRP.

Good red fruit aromatics: cherry and strawberry in the main, cranberry in support.  Hints of boiled sweet (Strawberries and creams).  Smooth, lacks a little flavour in the middle but partly makes up for that with some spice.

Drying, a little astringent with further hints of spice. Drinks well, chill it down and enjoy as you wish.  88 - Good

Tasted on: Friday 30th November, a Root Day
