Rob Dolan True Colours Dry Rose 2013

roseIf you love pale dry rose, then you will have probably come across Rob Dolan from the Yarra Valley. The team have chosen Cabernet Sauvignon as the dominant grape here while many Australian rose winemakers choose shiraz or pinot as their grape of choice. Yarra Cabernet is known for its elegance and this is very apparent in this rose.

Fragrant and spicy raspberry, strawberry fruit is perfumed by some rose petal on the nose. Even though it is a pale rose, it falls into the fuller, not full, body realm. Ripe tannins give a slight grip on the otherwise smooth as silk polish and support the concentrated fruit weight. With a savoury spice and floral finish, the flavours hang around well into the next sip. An excellent choice for drinking with food although it certainly does not need it.
