Drank this at Extra Space @ Boon Keng for a Rosé tasting session. Tasted alongside the Drumsara Pinot Rosé, Orliac Bergerie de L'Hortus Coteaux du Languedoc Rose de Saignee, Château Miraval Côtes de Provence Rosé (all from the 2012 vintage) and Turkey Flat Rosé 2010.
Colour remains baby pink with orangy notes starting to develop on the sides. Notes of fresh strawberries and cherries on the nose and palate. Has a perfumed bouquet upon opening and a nice, long lingering finish. Acidity is not as intense or pronounced as before, and the wine is starting to evolve secondary characteristics.
Interesting experience to revisit this wine after tasting this bottle a year ago.
Lovely pale pink, apricot colour in glass. Pleasant savory bouquet of herbs and flowers promises more than the wine actually delivers. Some initial sweetness of rose, aniseed and dew melon is soon overpowered by the strong finish of mint and floral. A bit unbalanced but a pleasant quaffer for a hot summer day.
Opened this bottle of wine to share with a friend for my birthday celebration. As he is not a seasoned drinker, I chose this bottle to pair with Teochew food. We had cold crab, braised goose and fried crayfish.
The pink colour of this wine looks attractive bordering on seductive. Has notes of strawberry and rose on the nose. The taste reminds me of raspberry and green apples. Light to medium body. Not a very exciting wine, but this is a wine that is easy to drink. The taste are a little disappointing as I did not manage to extract a lot of flavours from the body. Sensations from the wine are a little light for a rose. Nevertheless, I like the freshness and balanced acidity.
This is a good wine to serve on a hot day, well chilled of course! It is also an all-rounder that can pair well with a number of cuisines.
