Mitolo 2010 Jester Sangiovese Rosé
The rosé revolution is in full swing this summer thanks to wonderful savoury and dry wines like this brilliant little offering from a reliably good McLaren Vale producer. This has nothing at all in common with the fairyfloss/bubblegum rosés of the past - it's a serious drink in its own right; pale pink in colour with raspberries and cream flavours alongside hints of spice and earthiness. This is made from sangiovese, a variety which produces stunning rosés, and is nicely balanced with just 13.5% alcohol. Grab a bottle and join the revolution. $24.
