Pirate Cru Sin of The Mermaid Rosé 2019

A Bandol inspired Rosé, being 100% Mataro from the Barossa Valley. The inspiration doesn't stop with the variety alone, it being redolent of tangerine, orange peel and oil. So yes, it's certainly of its variety - and that's a good thing. Aromatics complete with a touch of skinsy, bergamot and Jasmine like vibes too.

The palate possesses weight, textually minded, yet is dry with a soft, gentle phenolic rub across. Not without a touch of acid in the mix, the engine of the wine, driving things along. Exactly what you want in a good Mataro based Rosé. 91
