Ravishing rosé

De Bortoli Villages Grenache Rosé 2017, Heathcote, AUD $20

This is a very more-ish rosé that invites more than one glass. It has a pale purple colour and candy-like, herbal and slightly reductive aromas, while the palate is delicate, restrained, fresh and light, and dangerously easy to quaff. The finish is appetisingly dry. (Screwcap)
