Giant Steps Yarra Valley Rosé 2021Regular price $29.00
97 Point Rosé
100% Pinot Noir Rosé from the Yarra Valley. Is it made in a classic Provencal style intended to appease the masses? No. Is it good? Hell Yeah!
I am ambivalent about Rosé, I like it but I don't seek it out...more of a white or red man. If someone shows me a glass of good Rosé I take the time to enjoy it. This is good Rosé, it has everything on show...wonderful aromas, dry texture a nice hit of drying acid and rich fruit on the palate (rich but not sweet).
Oranges, vanilla and rose petals tickle the nostrils followed by a rich hit of oranges and field strawberries on the palate. This is a dry Rosé enveloping the mouth in wonderful textures and then finishing dry...leaving just enough in the tank to reach for another glass.
"100% pinot noir, hand picked specifically for this rosé, wild-yeast fermented. Vibrantly fresh aromas and flavours; rose petals, violets and delicate spices on the bouquet, wild strawberries and raspberries on the mouth-watering palate. Great wine, not just great rosé. And it will repay cellaring."
