Dowie Doole DD Rosé 2023


Like many of the new wave of fine Rosé wines we are seeing from across the land, the benchmark here is the style of Rosé from Provence. Easy to see why when we look at a clean, crisp, dry style like this. From McLaren Vale, the blend is a mix of Grenache, which was planted back in 1965, with some Vermentino. Three weeks on lees and the colour is a gleaming pale pink. The nose exhibits delightful notes of strawberries, raspberries, gentle florals and a character reminiscent of being at a fairground. Attractively fragrant, there is a soft palate with a gentle lingering finish, backed by good energy and a fine line of acidity. Chill for summer and enjoy over the next couple of years. You don’t have to go all the way to France to drink like you are on the Mediterranean.
