The 2017 La Petite Mort Rosé is unique really and certainly not a Cote Rotie wannabe. Medium bodied, with the clearest, brightest colour. One of the most beautiful and ethereal Shiraz’s I have had since…since I can’t remember. The granite belt is genuinely cool climate, but unlike many high country styles has none of the off putting green hard tannins and exaggerated spice. Fluid, supple, silk, silk and more silk. Blue and red fruits, Toblerone chocolate, dried cranberry and a touch of white pepper. Just seasoning mind. Grand.
