Superb rosé

Marchand & Burch Villages Rosé Pinot Noir 2016, Western Australia, AUD $26

With a full-ish red/pink colour and an attractive strawberry and nutty bouquet, this is more than simple fruitiness. It’s more complex and savoury than most Aussie rosés. Savoury and layered with flavour, it’s rich, lingering and satisfying. (Screwcap)
