Krinklewood Francesca Rosé 2012

Krinklewood produce their wines biodynamically in the Hunter Valley.  I am not really convinced that biodynamic production adds much more than organic production, but I will say that the biodynamic wines I have tasted so far have each had a certain difficult to describe phenolic element to them.

This rosé from Krinklewood is the definition of salmon pink in colour, and has a clean aroma of muted intensity mainly of nectarines.  The palate is dry, light and citric in expression.  Sour yellow grapefruit and savoury/bitter characters intermingle with lemon pith and some metallic/stoney notes.  Made from 100% mourvedre, this is a tightly wound rosé suitable for current drinking.  Acceptable to Good
