• FEBRUARY WINE OF THE MONTH •
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!
Lightly chewy tannin and generous spiced notes on the finish leave a sublime lasting impression.
A big crowd-pleaser of a wine, so packed full of fruit that it really appeals.
Bright, zingy lime and grapefruit flavours, with passion fruit and gooseberry notes.
