Spinifex Barossa Valley Rosé

This is pristine rosé that strikes high notes of rose petal and pink pepper that ring out from the bouquet like a bell, resonating into the palate and through a long, focused finish. For persistence, focus, texture and sheer purity, no 2011 Aussie rosé I’ve seen yet is as striking as this. It’s dry, savoury, gorgeously textured and mesmerisingly persistent. $18 at Australian Wine Centre.
