I liked this Rose! It's very light-bodied, so would be nice as an aperitif, with your appetizer course, or just for sipping all day. I liked the minerality of this wine, as it really balanced the berries on the palate. Excellent choice for the price.

With a fine ruby colour, Yalumba Y Series Sanviovese Rose 2006 has exoticaromas of raspberries, strawberries and cream with notes of lilac and violets,all with a minerally edge. A succulent mouth feel is enhanced by flavours ofstrawberry, rhubarb and cinnamon. It opens to a fine dense body of wine witha soft texture that is long and beautifully balanced.A wonderful fresh wine for current drinking, try serving it slightly chilled. Aperfect complement to a wide range of cuisine, or as a refreshing glass of wineon its own.


Winemaker's Notes:

An early heatwave in January caused some initial concern in the lead up to vintage 2006. However its only effect was to bring on flavour ripeness earlier than usual. As soon as the heat disappeared, the grapes were ready to harvest and the remainder of January and February remained mild and dry. Sangiovese is the most widely grown variety in Italy, and arguably best known as the basis for the red wines of Tuscany and Chianti. Sangiovese wines typically are medium bodied red wines, with aromas and flavours of cherries and spice with floral overtones. A wonderful food wine, this Sangiovese shows all the cherry fruit and spice, but made as a rosé style - light in body and fresh for current drinking.
