WineDiva's Review

Unique, aromatic, candied.
Made from Rotberger, grown by the Drought Family, whose motto is Semper Sitiens (which means, always thirsty), the 2020 version of this pink is a very pale, almost onionskin, shade. While the hue has softened, the aromas have not. Bitter orange and toasted spices, vanilla, charred rhubarb, burnt honey, strawberry jelly and undertones of wild herbs/sage are expressed on the nose. In the mouth, candied peaches, herbal tea and red berry coulis flavours dominate.
It has a unique sweet and savoury character.
