Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rosť 2009


"The "Drink Rosť" window in Alaska is microscopic. I'm pretty sure it's right now. Hopefully we haven't missed it! So while you're grooving with your lawn chair, porch, deck and/or barbecue I'm suggesting the 2009 Yalumba Sangiovese Rosť from South Australia, Barossa and Wrattonbully to be exact. The wine is light bodied and low alcohol, which makes it perfect with this hot weather. I had mine with spicy fish tacos and fajitas. Fabulous! The nose is vibrant, nicely edgy and spicy. The mouth is delicately fruited with strawberry and firm cherry, showing off its sangiovese heritage. Cheers!"

Rated 88 points - "This is an excellent rosť from Yalumba. Weighs in at only 11.5 percent alcohol too. Perfect for autumn quaffing. I love the style of this. Maybe it doesn't have a great deal of length, but it has enough. And anyway, its savoury, cherried, tobacco-like flavours are thoroughly delicious. Smells and tastes beaut. No alcohol heat whatsoever, allowing the flavours to sing freely. Won me over instantly."

BLOODY GOOD - The Quaff 2010 'Run for the Roses' Pink Wine of the Year Award - "The Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rosť has been the most consistent performer in the price range for the past couple of years. (This wine...) has more complexity and intrigue and a more savoury, drier palate profile. The Tuscan variety, sangiovese, often seems to do better as a rosť in Australia than as a straight varietal. This has some dried herb/dried flower aromatics, as ripe, sweet red cherry flavours, is juicy and fresh before a clean, dry finish that grips gently."
