Cracka Review

This fun, pretty little Rose is made in a dry style, and exhibits smells of bright red berries and sour cherries on the nose, along with subtle hints of soft cinnamon-like spices. The palate is light and sweetly-fruited, with refreshing acidity, fine and talcy tannins, and a vibrant cherry-like finish that hangs around. Great value, and excellent with seared tuna.

Winemaker's Notes

This is a highly aromatic wine showing raspberry, pomegranate, strawberry and violets. The palate is vibrant and refreshing with layers of ruby grapefruit, blood orange and cranberry.

Enjoy with spicy chicken fajitas with a corn, tomato and coriander salsa. Vegan friendly.

2016 Yalumba Y Series Sangiovese Rose

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2011 Vintage) says
This is the finest ultracheap sangiovese rosŽ on the shelves right now, capturing the tangy, fresh, fragrant and textural appeal for which this variety is gaining increasing attention.
James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
While dry, has more mouthfeel and fruit weight than many of its peers; cherry and berry flavours are neatly balanced by acidity, the profile assisted by the moderate alcohol.

No more queening around with sweet rosé! Y Series is refreshingly off-dry, a pretty little fruit-loaded thing with perfumed raspberries and strawberries. Keep it well clear of the flower girls.

Shortlisted for The Quaff 2011 'Run for the Rosés' PINK WINE OF THE YEAR AWARD. This is a superb rosé: floral, lightly framed yet intense with sour cherry, mulberry flavours, tight and fine, with a wonderfully dry finish and refreshing grip.

This is an excellent rosé from Yalumba. Weighs in at only 11.5 percent alcohol too. Perfect for autumn quaffing. I love the style of this. Maybe it doesn't have a great deal of length, but it has enough. And anyway, its savoury, cherried, tobacco-like flavours are thoroughly delicious. Smells and tastes beaut. No alcohol heat whatsoever, allowing the flavours to sing freely. Won me over instantly., 2010 2010
