d'Arenberg Stephanie the Gnome Rosé 2017


This d'Arenberg label is typically odd, but the wine inside is good.  A lesser seen blend of sangiovese (73%) and shiraz (27%), this rosé presents as "cellophane pink" in colour.  Its aromas are more usual and remind of red grapefruit.  The palate has fresh acidity, a hint of spritz, a medium to full body and a dry impression (Alc: 12.1%, Region: McLaren Vale, Rating: Good, Drink: now, Tasted: August, 2017, Source: Sample)
