Here’s the brand new 2012 100% Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rose.
I’ve just opened a chilled bottle of the rose for the troops up here on the top floor and asked them what they think. Here’s the end result…….given that most of the comments revolved around the word”Yum”.
The colour – cherry, pink,strawberry and rhubarb
The aroma – raspberry (even a bit like those ‘ripe raspberry’ jubey fruit gel lollies – that’s candy if you’re in the USA), strawberries and cream (again the combination soft chewy lollies), fresh strawberries, a bit of fairy floss. Definitely lashings of aroma leaping out of the glass
The flavor – snapping natural zippy acid, strawberry cherry crossover, fruit but dry
And what food would go with it?? Proscuito and melon, sashimi, sushi – no drama with the wasabi, salt & pepper squid, Lemongrass barramundi – like they have at Star Of Siam in Adelaide, Yum Cha BBQ pork fluffy steamed buns, Chinese sweet and sour crispy beef, gazpacho soup, beef or tuna carpaccio, tapenade on bruschetta, car cakes with Chilli mayo!!
Final word?? From Larry…….she said…..”mmmmm berry good”
