Levantine Hill Coldstream Guard Rose 2018 Victoria Yarra Valley
It’s a beauty! Bone dry and loaded with red berry fruits, rhubarb, textural appeal, a lick of spice, and a moreish length begging for you to come back. Superbly balanced and nicely weighted.
It’s a blend of Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet. The Pinot was wild fermented in ten year old French foudre, the Shiraz was bled off and also wild fermented in smaller old French oak barrels whilst the Cabernet saw 100% stainless steel. The end result is smashing. No wait, it’s more than that. It’s smashable!
The media release suggests long, languid lunches – oh yeah! Yes please!
