Pepperilly Estate Wines Rosé 2011

This rosé from Pepperilly Estate is made from 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% shiraz.  I was half hoping that this estate's rosé might have been made from grenache, but I suspect that went into their rather moreish grenache mourvedre shiraz blend!


Salmon pink in colour, this rosé has aromatics of rose petals and a smidgen of cedar wood.  The palate has a viscous texture, a touch of petillance, medium acid and is dry and very drinkable with some fruit sweetness evident.  You won't go far wrong with this, particularly at only $12.  Acceptable
