Brokenwood Rosato 2021


The Italians – Nebbiolo and Sangiovese – join Spanish Tempranillo in a multinational meeting of minds. Each grape brings something of its individual character to the final blend: a firm backbone (Nebbiolo) fleshed out with bright red and black fruits (Tempranillo) leading to Mediterranean-style textural savouriness (Sangiovese). This is one mighty arresting dry rose trio.

Bright, confection-tuber rose pink is a standout in the glass. Eye-catching stuff. Wild strawberries, cherry meet watermelon ice and confectionery bonbon on the bouquet, with a light dustiness. The more you chill the wine, the less of that lovely scent will be on display. Take care.

Love the spice that comes into play lifting the palate. It’s joined by black cherry, pomegranate, red berries. Yes, it’s quite complex, but there’s more. There has been huge development in Australian rose in recent years with the best examples going dry (tick), looking to natural, bright acidity (tick) while also incorporating a lovely textural mouthfeel (double tick). They’re all here to be enjoyed.
