Wine of the Week AU

Fire Gully Rosé 2016, Margaret River, AUD $32

This outstanding rosé has a light purple colour and a raspberry and toasted cashew nut bouquet. It’s full and rich, dry and firm on the tongue, with a hint of grip which adds to structure. It’s a superb drink, well-balanced and with more to its flavour spectrum than most rosés. (Screwcap)
