Wine: Yalumba Y Series
Type: Sangiovese Rosé
Reason for purchase: Another wine club offer from work.
Review: I'm not a huge fan of rose, but the use of the increasingly popular Sangiovese variety swung me into purchasing a few bottles of this wine.
The variety imparts a slightly sweet and slightly sour quality to the wine, which is a lovely quality for a nice summery drop. It reminds me a little of a Sauv Blanc or Pinot Gris, but the unique flavour that is Sangiovese creates a perfect light and refreshing wine, perfect for any summer meal.
I'm more impressed with the wine giant Yalumba branching out into this little Italian. Keep a bottle in the fridge this summer for that picnic lunch on a beautiful day.
