Baillieu 2018 Rose Mornington Peninsula

Baillieu 2018 Rose Mornington PeninsulaRosé and homemade 12 hour slow cooked pulled pork is a favourite combo of mine! I recently tried out a recipe from the Ripe Deli cookbook alongside homemade bbq sauce and pineapple salsa and it was insanely good teamed with this Baillieu Vineyard 2018 from Mornington Peninsula which I received from Vino Bambino recently.

This rosé is made from hand-harvested Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. To gain the colour it spends about 6 hours with the skins (this is called maceration). It retails for $25.

I found it a peachy colour in the glass with a slight golden tinge. Pastry, citrus zest, potpourri and fresh watermelon came to mind when I stick my nose into the glass. While in the mouth crisp apple, fresh raspberries and grapefruit tartness come through for me. The finish is dry with a hint of aniseed. Nice flavour that marries well with the pulled pork.

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