Rock of Wisdom Superfly Rosé 2018

A second, or rather parallel, label for the Rock of Wisdom crew of Peter and Sofi Hiscock. Certainly up there with respect to offering some of the best bang for buck in drinkability combined with visual 'shelf-shout' appeal. At least as far my opinion goes, FWIW.

Cranberry, rose, a little Turkish Delight. A lifted edge, augmenting - not distracting - maybe a toffee apple, caramel complexity. Bergamot, even. Complex aromatically, revealing a shifting aromatic landscape.

Pretty rich, texturally, luscious in how it wraps itself around the palate. Faint kisses of berry fruit, just touching off what is fundamentally a savoury-centric wine. 

Straddles a line, although I'm not quite certain which side of an imaginary line it sits. That said, on a 'Spring' day where Brisbane nudged the 35° mark it certainly was appreciated. 91
