2015 Chalmers Heathcote Rosato

The Chalmers have long been in the vanguard of the alternative new wine order as it were and this Rosato is another example of that foresight and creativity. The make up for each year's Rosato changes with this vintage a 40/60 blending of oak barrel fermented Aglianico and tank fermented Sagrantino from premium Heathcote fruit. 

The wine pours salmon pink/orange blush in the glass. 

Fragrant aromas of redcurrant, cranberry, cherry and dried herbs.
Palate is dry, compelling and drinkable. Soft flavours of red fruits, savoury spice and candied orange peel. A textural palate enhanced by citrus acidity and grippy tannins. A long savoury aftertaste.

A truly outstanding Australian-made Rosato. Loads of interest, complexity and rather delicious to drink.
