“Slightly candied red fruit with some cranberry notes, good acidity and a little edginess overall.”
— Santé, Apr 2019
“The Northern Hemisphere’s 2018 rosés are just starting to seep into the market. So it’s a good thing—a very good thing—that a dandy Down Under offering such as the Yalumba ‘The Y Series’ Sangiovese South Australia Rosé 2018 is easy enough to find in the meantime. Lovely florals portend an array of red fruits, not just the usual cherry/berry but also watermelon. This is a dry but rich and generous rosé made not with shiraz but with a grape usually associated with Italy. The butterfly on the label signifies this stellar winery’s sustainable practices. A superb patio sipper, this Aussie delight is a natural for shrimp (and not just on the Barbie), other shellfish, trout and spring salads.”
