BAIE Wines 2020 Rose – Bellarine Peninsula

We had perfect weather on the weekend for a bit of paddling pool & Rosé action in the backyard. Baby TC was happy, I was happy, it was win-win.

The Rosé I decided to crack into was this BAIE Wines 2020 Rosé from here on the Bellarine Peninsula in VIC. Being a cool climate region, Pinot Noir thrives which is why this Rosé is made from 100% Pinot Noir.

I found it a pale pinky peach colour on the eye. On the nose it’s fresh and gives me a bit of a punch vibe with aromas of fresh strawberries, mandarins and lemons. That elegant punch, summer garden party vibe flows through to the palate where it’s a little tropical, a little bit berry-filled and a little bit citrusy. Super easy drinking and thirst quenching.

BAIE Wines 2019 Shiraz – Bellarine Peninsula

We recently tried our first BAIE wines from here in the Bellarine Peninsula. They had an epic Christmas sale on and I just couldn’t resist.

BAIE is a small batch family owned, operated and ‘orientated’ winery. The BAIE vineyard was established in 2000 and they started their own label in 2006.

The climate here is cool (to give you an idea of where the Bellarine is, it’s across the bay from Melbourne city). So if you like cool climate wines, pop BAIE on your list to try.

I posted about the BAIE Sauv Blanc a few weeks back (scroll back to the post about dinosaur pasta wine matching). And recently we cracked into this 2019 Shiraz. It’s wild fermented and matured in premium French oak for 16 months. $30/bottle.

We really enjoyed how delicious and juicy this Shiraz is. So many yummy berry and plum notes with a lick of spice and elegant tannins on the finish. Yum!
