Australia’s fresh and vibrant Roses are generally produced from red grape varaties such as SHiraz and Grenache, with only minimal contact on skins to give the wines their signature ‘blush’. When choosing a Rose, look for wines displaying red cherry, strawberry and/ or raspberry flavours, sometimes even with a hint of earth and spice.
A fantastic food wine, Rose is great alongside salads, antipasto platters, fish dishes or even your favourite curry. And, remember Roses are best served young and chilled.
Steamed Coral Cod with Goji Berries and Lotus Leaf: Leogate Estate Brokenback Rose 2012
Named after the large lion adorned iron gates guarding their Pokolbin vineyards, Leogate Estate is a Hunter favourite. Their delightful 2012 Rose made from Shiraz follows the Gold-medal winning 2011 vintage and looks set to repeat the success.
Dusty pink to red in the glass, it has a soft mix of raspberry, watermelon and rose petal aromas. Light, dry and fresh, the palate features a savoury mix of red fruits with a hint of pink peppercorn. It has a lovely feminine structure and texture bound by crisp, vibrant acidity.
