Golden Grove Rosé Brose 2019

A recent trip to the Granite Belt led to the Cellar Door of Golden Grove Estate, jeez the Costanzo family are putting out some rippers, this Rosé no exception.

A ripping Rosé from Ray Costanzo of Golden Grove Estate in Queensland's Granite Belt. Made from parcels of Shiraz (43%), Sangiovese (34%), Grenache (23%).

A beautiful pale salmon Rose, strawberry kissed fruit accents, hints of cranberry. It's sensitively staking it's case, pitched nicely. Subtle fruit hints on the fore palate, entwined with an acidic freshness that lends a tang to the body and drives an exquisite length, partial barrel fermentation enhancing that. 

It's dry, not overtly so, just a very well made wine. 92
