One of the first things I always look for when having a Rosé is to work out what grape variety/s it’s made from. Because this can give you some good hints as to what the wine will be like.
This Krondorf Growers Rosé 2019 from the Barossa Valley is made from 100% Grenache. Grenache typically is soft on the palate and full of red fruits with a bit of spice. From tasting previous Grenache rosé wines, I knew this one would be up my alley.
This bottle came in my sample Cellarmasters My Favourites Rosé Wine Reservation pack (thank you!). This is an annual subscription where three times a year in March, October and December you receive a case of rosé to try. I believe they’re the only company currently offering a Rosé subscription, so if you’re a pink wine lover you should check it out ASAP!
Mr Spittoon and I recently enjoyed getting to know this bottle and it’s safe to say I’m excited the case came with 4 bottles of it inside.
In the glass it’s a pinky peach diamond colour. Strawberries, cranberries and some freshly squeezed lemon come through on the nose. It definitely has a gorgeous fruity bouquet to it – it’s so fresh and inviting. In the mouth it’s dry, filled to the brim with red berry flavours and has a wonderfully smooth texture. Super easy to consume!
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
