Buy of the Week AU

Catlin GB’s Rosé 2017, Adelaide Hills, AUD $20-$22

Made from montepulciano, barrel-fermented and aged five months in oak. Light salmon-pink, it has barrel influenced complexity as well as nutty, strawberry and quince-paste nuances. It’s dry but not austere, with multi-faceted flavour that never bores. Utterly delicious. (screwcap)
