Lip-smacking rosé

10x-Rose-2015Ten Minutes by Tractor 10X Rosé, Mornington Peninsula 2015 AUD $26

This is a delicious, pale pink, savoury, dry rosé of subtle complexity, in the Provencal style. There are smoke and strawberry hints, a whiff of oak, and the acidity is soft and balanced. Delicate, balanced and exceedingly drinkable. (13 per cent alcohol; screw cap)
