Tasting Notes: The 2012 edition of this excellent Syrah rosé from Stag's Hollow sees only a nominal amount of Orange Muscat and Viognier (2% and 1% respectively) added to the blend but the effect is impressive with gorgeous, sweet, floral and tangy aromas of cherry, rose petals, tangerine, lime rind and rhubarb appearing on the nose. The cheerful and intense, slightly off-dry palate follows with mouth watering citrus acidity and richly textured red fruit flavours paired with cool mineral and light herb flavours. Light, tangy and intense. What more could you want from both a food-friendly and stand-on-its-own rosé? Drink now-2014.
