La Prova 2012 Aglianico Rosato

La Prova is the name of a new range of wines from Adelaide Hills winemaker Sam Scott. The label means the trial, or experiment, and the range features Italian grape varieties. I was very impressed by both the pinot grigio and this pale rosé made from aglianico grapes. It doesn't pay to be colourist when it comes to either rosé or pinot noir; some of the palest wines are the most textural and savoury. Such is the case here, with this plump, tangy and dry number that went brilliantly with some Lebanese dishes. $23.
