Abbey Vale Rose - 750mL
The Abbey Vale winery and cellar door is set in the heart of the beautiful Yallingup Hills in the north of the Margaret River region, where the vines enjoy a unique cooling maritime influence from both north and west. Highly regarded for its chardonnay, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon, the 17-hectare vineyard now counts Abbey Vale Premium RSV Rosé – a blend of merlot and shiraz – among its trophy winners, having taken out Best Rosé at the Margaret River Wine Show last year.
Our judges were similarly impressed by the wine’s Provençal flavour cues, and its modern, light and joyous style. Pure aromas of wild strawberry and white florals engage the nose, with hints of bouquet garni herbs. The palate displays ripe fruit and super fine tannins with delicious wild forest fruit, underlying savoury nuances and a delicacy of structure. Acid is lacy and mouth-watering, and the finish bone dry.
