De Bortoli Grenache Wizardry Grenache Rosé 2020, Heathcote, AUD $23

De Bortoli’s superb and modestly priced Grenache Wizardry range comprises a red, a white (grenache blanc) and this rosé, which is a benchmark for Aussie rosé.

It has a very pretty light coral-pink colour, and the bouquet is likewise attractive: strawberry, raspberry fruit with a nutty barrel-ferment undertone. It has intensity, weight and persistence, rich fruit and generous flavour without sacrificing finesse. A serious rosé. (Screwcap)
