Ravishing rosé

First Foot Forward The Patch Vineyard Rosé 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $25

A delicious barrel-fermented pinot noir with onion-skin colour and a complex, strawberry, rosewater, nutty, fragrant bouquet which is very varietal but also multi-layered. The palate is soft, yet near enough to dry, and superbly balanced. (Screwcap)
