Brick Bay

Brick Bay Rose 2011 (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 4% Malbec) 11% abv
A very pretty light rose appearance with a silvery shimmer
N: Wild strawberry, red apple skin and summer berry pudding seduce the nose. 

P: Fruity and crisp with flavors that reflect the nose, medium+ acidity pushes forward the light red berry flavors and introduces a delicate rose and peach pit layer adding just a touch of complexity. A smidge of tannin adds a layer of texture to the smooth fruity texture already present.
Overall a lovely Spring, Summer and Autumn wine.
Don't chill it too much, just 20 mins in the fridge is all it needs with just 11% alcohol.
4 Stars.
