Ringer Reef Alpine Valleys Rosé 2016

No information is available on the label but Ringer Reef says it is predominantly Sangiovese with smaller percentages of Merlot, Nebbiolo and Vespolina. An eclectic blend if ever there was one from the Porepunkah sub-region of the Alpine Valley.

A pale crimson coloured rosé.
On the nose florals, cherry, strawberry and watermelon with a dusting of spice. Fresh and enticing aromatics. 
The palate is soft and juicy. Strawberry, cherry, dried cranberry and some herbal tinges throughout. Smooth texture, dusty tannins and zesty acidity with a nice rounded finish.

This is not a complex wine by any stretch but it ticks all the right boxes. Dry, savoury, light-bodied, zesty, refreshing and drinkable. Well priced and very good summer time drinking.
