Wine of the Week AU

Willow Creek Vineyard Rare Hare Pinot Noir Rosé 2018, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $30

The colour is light salmon-pink and it has an attractive savoury, spicy aroma: not shrill, simple fruit but much more interesting, thanks in part to barrel fermentation and skin contact. The palate is light, dry, savoury and flavoursome with loads of appeal. A little fleshy richness adds to its charm. It’s very more-ish. (Screwcap)
