St. Hubertus Estate Winery 2012 Frizzante Rosé - 83pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: June 24th, 2013
Tasting Notes: Mild effervescent texture on the palate pays homage to the "frizzante" used in the title, but "bubbly" it ain't, I'm afraid, in any sense of the word. This ruby-purple hued rosé goes Full Metal Rhubarb with a vein of sourness running through the red-fruit and mineral flavour profile. A little rustic and unruly, yet commendable for its intensity and resistance towards masking everything with residual sugar. Pair with standard picnic and BBQ fare. Drink 2013-2014.
