Delamere Vineyard Sparkling Rosé NV, Tasmania $30
Light onion-skin colour, the bouquet confirming mature toasty, smoky, savoury pinoty characters; strawberry and charcuterie notes too. The palate is rich yet fine, with intensity and length, a clean, dry middle and finish. Appetising and high-quality. (12.5 per cent alcohol; cork.)
