Mrs Wigley Grenache Rosé 2013

The wines under the label of ‘Mrs Wigley’ are as charismatic as the feline with half a tail that inspired the name. This more-ish wine is a partner for the pale, but no means insipid, bubbly – Mrs Wigley Moscato.  However, whereas the Moscato is like a lovely soft lick of musky sweetness, this rose has been created to be dry.

Made from ripe McLaren Vale Grenache, it is rich in ripe lush berry fruit in colour, aroma and flavour. It is one of Australia’s darker coloured rosé wines, but unmistakably still a rosé. On the crisp palate, there is a slight lavender herbal lift to give the cherry berry fruit some added interest. Enjoy it chilled now!  A good wine to drink on the beach watching the sun set with picnic at hand.
