Beelgara Estate 2010 Rose

There are some wine styles and grape varieties that just shouldn't be expensive and one of my greatest gripes is rose. We should not have rose retailing at $15 and yet many wholesale at that price. Why? It's a pretty simplistic, no expensive wood, no bottle maturation, "get into the market as soon as it's bottled style".
So we applaud our favourite, biggest selling rose - it's back with the latest vintage and rocketing out at cellar door. It's on the sweetish side so it can handle a really big chill and with just 10.5% a/v it's perfect for a sunny Sunday picnic.

Our Price: $ 7 per bottle by the dozen

I've been trying to like this variety for some time and after forking out $20 per bottle, many times I had all but given up.

However, much to the disgust of my more masculine friends, I've enjoyed plenty of this and can give it a thumbs up.
