Brokenwood Rosato 2023


For those wondering why Rosato and not simply Rosé, it is because the wine is made from the famous Italian varieties, Nebbiolo and Sangiovese, sourced from vineyards, in NSW and Victoria, although we are not given anything more specific. Partial foot stomping here, with the juice left on the skins overnight, before pressing to tank. A small percentage sees fermentation in old oak. This is a vibrant neon pink. It might be a curious blend but it works with a comforting strawberries and cream aroma. Spices, red fruits and florals. Mouthfilling flavours, fresh acidity, very good length too. This is fresh and elegant and should continue to provide delicious drinking for at least the next two to three years, but it is hard to imagine much will be left after this summer.
