GBW Wine of the Month: February 2020
Winbirri has been on somewhat of a roll for the last six months, having impressed me recently with the 2018 Bacchus and Solaris, and the hugely welcoming Classic 2014. This Pinot Noir Rosé 2018 follows in the same footsteps.
It begins with an immediate Pinot-laced nose of cherry blossom, wild raspberry and deeper ripe cherry aromas. Those red fruit flavours are immediately apparent on the palate too, with tangy cranberry and pink grapefruit notes soon softening to a deep, mature summer red berry-led mid-taste.
This is a textbook example of what I love about great English rosé: delicious, pure, concentrated red berry flavours paired with unquestionable English acidity. This rosé doesn’t just hold back!
