Georgie Orbach Sangiovese Rose 2020
Tasted on: March 2021
A big thank you to Georgie Orbach for sending this sample my way! I was under no obligation to post about it and all opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
Say hello to the latest Rosé new release from Georgie Orbach! This 2020 Georgie Orbach Rosé is made from 100% Sangiovese grapes grown in NSW’s Riverina region.
The recommended music match for this fun and flirty $10 bottle is “Hold On” – Wilson Phillips . And it weighs in at 12% alcohol, so it’s a perfect brunch wine if you ask me 😉
We enjoyed it during the week and matched it to the Sticky Orange Fish with pearl couscous and sugar snap peas recipe. It was divine!
My tasting note:
On the eye it’s a pretty peach colour and it has lovely aromas of fresh citrus and raspberries on the nose. It’s light and dainty! In the mouth red berry flavours dominate and to be honest with you, it’s just bloody easy to consume. Super thirst-quenching and refreshing and at $10 a bottle, you can’t go wrong!

“Life can pass you by… Don’t forget to stop and smell the Rosés”
Back in June, I headed along to the Sidegate Wines Art Series launch party where I was introduced to Georgie Orbach and her wine range. It was lovely to meet winemaker Georgie and when the team recently approached me to try their latest Rosé, I couldn’t help but say yes.
I love that the suggested match for this wine is Don’t Stop Believing by Journey – I love a good wine and music match!
So how did we find the wine as we listened to a bit of journey? Here are our thoughts:
It’s a pretty peach shade in the glass. The nose is full of light berry, a bit of stonefruit and some slightly charred citrus. While in the mouth it’s easy drinking with notes of dried apricots mixed with cherries. It’s fruity, light and perfect for Spring and Summer.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
