Bit heavy for #Rosé

When picking the wines for the latest #thetcwineclub box 📦 and deciding to stick to one region to help celebrate #aussiewinemonth - I literally had no idea 💡 how interesting the wines coming out of Victoria's Gippsland would be! You can check out my 2 previous notes 📝 for the others we tasted.

This Pinot Noir Rosé from Bass Philip is just as exciting! The winery is named after two explorers who first mapped parts of Victoria. Again like Moondarra they're very much about the land and minimal intervention I.e no irrigation, pesticides etc.

On the eye this 2016 is a cloudy blood orange colour. The cloudiness is to be expected since the wine is unfiltered in order to get the upmost flavour from the grapes. On the nose 👃 it's reminiscent of toffee apples 🍎, cranberries and cherries. It's juicy and full of flavour on the palate with a distinct savoury, pepperiness to it. This is one serious rosé that would compliment a range of hearty foods. We enjoyed it with chicken enchiladas which matched wonderfully 👌

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine

I heard in Melbourne they call “natural wine” “collingwood koolaid”. Jonestown 2018 sounds cute right about now. After one dexy I could be fooled very easily into drinking this sans sulfur koolaid. Strawberry milkshake made with buttermilk frozen custard with a little Yuzu zest. Living in New York you sometimes forget it’s always summer/sunny somewhere. This will remind you, and if you’re lucky it will make you forget again 💁
