Angullong-2017-Rosato

2017 Angullong Fossil Hill Rosato

The new 2017 Angullong ‘Fossil Hill’ Rosato is 100 per cent Sangiovese made from the original ‘Grosso’ clone plantings in the vineyard. We have named it Rosato as a nod to its Italian varietal heritage. It is a modern rosé with an enticing, lively, crisp palate. The flavours are of summer berries, which linger delightfully with a long dry, savoury finish. Serve it cool, but not too cold, with a platter of antipasti.

91/100 ★★★★ “Freshly minted rosé with a pale pink hue and fresh cream and strawberries on the nose. The palate is beautifully dry, savoury, lemony and textured, with pleasing weight and gentle spice. Top value.” The Real Review, Toni Paterson MW, Oct 2017:

 “Good lunch time drinking. This is all strawberries and cream. Fruit is soft with good carry but the acid sits up a fraction more than expected. This bright acid frames the palate with a pool of creaminess plonked right in the centre. Red berries ride it all the way home.”

“…completely dry and packed with quite a delicious, morish flavour.”

“Very light in bright pink colour, with a fabulously grapey aroma and oodles of cherry and slightly savoury spices on the palate. They wine is elegant and moreish. AB FAB!!
