Kalleske Rosina

No doubt, Kalleske owns one of the great vineyard complexes in Australia. The Grenache fruit in this 2009 Kalleske Rosina Rose is pure and very tasty. There is quite a lot to like in this wine, for example the low alcohol level of 12.5%. This makes it a nice drink for summer (if we had one) lunch.

My problem with it is that it is a little sweet. This is hard to avoid with Grenache unless the grapes are picked really early like Spinifex does. A blend would probably have added some complexity and more savoury characteristics to this wine, which otherwise is well made.

Score: 89/+
