La Maschera Rosè of Granaxia 2016
Just one of a phalanx of new pink wines from the Hill Smith extended stable. Great packaging on this too. A blend of Barossa Grenache with a little Sangiovese.
Light orange with a dash of pink, it’s a bright and juicy modern pink with plenty of Grenache tang and a hint of strawberry cream. Lightly textured and offsets it’s lightly ferrous tang with citrusy acidity.
Simple and light, but everything you’d want in a good modern pale rosè. Best drinking: 2017-2018. 16.8/20, 89/100. 11%, $22. Would I buy it? I’d go a glass or two.
