Description

The Salome Tempranillo Rosé is one of the new wave of serious rosé
wines now emerging across Australia, miles away from the simple, sweet,
confectionery rosé that has dominated the market in the last 10 years.
Inspired by the wines of southern Europe, lighter in colour than most
Australian rosé and more focused on the savoury rather than sweet and
with a textural influence dominating the late palate rather than sugary
residue. To this end tempranillo is the grape of choice, less overtly fruity
than the traditional shiraz, merlot or cabernet varieties commonly used in
Australia for rosé, tempranillo provides attractive savoury fruit aromas but
with a licorice like flavour and palate profile.
The wine is fermented dry and does not rely on residual sugar to provide
mid palate but only on the quality of the fruit flavours. Bright fluorescent
pink in colour, the lifted bouquet is all cherry blossom, strawberry and
Turkish Delight musk, which delights the palate with fruit sweetness, it
races to a beautiful zingy crisp finish that invites another sip... and again...
where did that bottle go?
Salome Tempranillo Rosé is ideal for uncomplicated celebratory
occasions but has the added flavour and structural complexity to stand up
to more serious consideration as part of a meal; pizza, tomato based
pasta, light meats and spicy grilled chicken.
