Alkimi 'The Good Earth' Rose 2020 (Yarra Valley, Victoria) "...mandarin peel, red apple, strawberry..."
"Shiraz Rosé from the Silvan Reservoir vineyard in the Yarra. Coppery, bony, phenolic and achingly dry. Has some vinosity and power, even if it’s a bit too firm for mine. Quality and intent, regardless. Best drinking: now. " - 91 Points, Australian wine Review
"I sat by the river slurping this watching the shadows of the afternoon get longer and longer. A wonderful picnic wine if I do say so myself.Made from single vineyard Yarra Valley fruit, this is impressive at every turn. Rose gold in the glass, attractive aromas of mandarin peel, red apple skin, apricot kernel, strawberries and cream plus watermelon husk. If that's not enough to get you in the mood, you're hard pressed.Fine spice waltz across the mouth sprinkled atop a bed of red fruit and dried red berries. A super long and persistent finish caps off a cracking wine which will be drained from the bottle in no time. And it was. Great stuff. Drink now." - 94 Points, Qwine
