This rosé from Pepperilly Estate is made from 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% shiraz. I was half hoping that this estate’s rosé might have been made from grenache, but I suspect that went into their rather moreish grenache mourvedre shiraz blend!
Salmon pink in colour, this rosé has aromatics of rose petals and a smidgen of cedar wood. The palate has a viscous texture, a touch of petillance, medium acid and is dry and very drinkable with some fruit sweetness evident. You won’t go far wrong with this, particularly at only $12. Acceptable
