Tahbilk is the first Australian winery to be carboNZero certified at both an organisation and product level and one of only eight wineries in the world.
59% Grenache and 41% Mourvèdre to arrive at a fresh, mouth-wateringly dry wine of immediate enjoyment. Bright and appealing red berry fruits sit alongside tantalisingly savoury nuances in a lighthearted package that will surprise with its unexpected depth of character.
Light, bright pink. A pleasing tussle between lively red fruits on the bouquet and mid-palate, complexity arriving on the finish with some spicy/savoury notes. Tahbilk is rightly establishing a reputation for this rose style. Drink to: 2023; Price: $22.00; Date Tasted: September 2019; Alcohol: 13%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday
