Bass Phillip Pinot Rosé 2011


I read somewhere that Phillip Jones' theory on making good rosé is that you need to treat it as a wine, rather than an afterthought.  While drinking this wine, the thought occurred to me that Bass Phillip may now in fact be making Australia's best rosé.  There's an orange hue in the glass, and it is quite aromatic with reminders of cherry and earth.  The palate is viscous with a depth of length and flavour unexpected in a rosé or the vintage.

Rating: Good, Abv: 12.2%, Price: $24, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.bassphillip.com, Tasted: 2014
