Review: *** $ Robert Oatley Rose of Sangiovese, Mudgee, Australia, 2011 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Robert Oatley Rose of Sangiovese.


Original tasting and review : This is Robert Oatley Rose of Sangiovese, Mudgee, Australia, 2011, finished at 13% alcohol and first sampled three years from vintage date, in November, 2014.

In the glass: Light orange with hints of pink.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows light bright fruit with a touch of funk.  From the aroma, seems like this will be tangy and, perhaps, odd.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact softer and fresher than imagined, mixing light blackberries with a fleshy white wine base.  Finish moves from the middle of your mouth and fades gently, without building to an acidic crescendo.  Call it friendly and gentle.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, and is a definite best value at a bargain price point.
