Kim Crawford Marlborough Rose 750 mL
The first thing that strikes you about this rose is its deep, vibrant burnt orange colour, a pretty good indication that it's made from pinot noir. And it's not just the colour that's distinctive. Unlike most rose's, which tend to be fairly light and lively, this is robust in texture and weight. The flavours are concentrated, layered, and well defined, the acidity is clean and fresh, and there's a light tannic dryness. This is a rose that walks down a different path and it's delicious. Drink it now and in the next year or so.
