FRESH ROSÉ

Australian House & Garden - - Living -

One of the rea­sons rosé is pop­u­lar is its ex­cep­tional value. That and the fact that it can be pro­duced from so many dif­fer­ent grape va­ri­eties, cre­at­ing a broad range.

For value, it’s hard to beat the 2016 Down the Lane Gris de Gris at $13, made from pinot gris. Or, from France, the 2016 Ar­ro­gant Frog Ri­bet Pink Syrah, $10. For a few dol­lars more, try the 2016 Scarpan­toni, $13, which is made from gamay grapes; the 2016 Hes­keth Wild at Heart, $14, made from petit ver­dot and shi­raz; the 2016 Sig­nor Vino, $17, made from san­giovese; or the Marl­bor­ough Pinot Noir Rosé, $18, from New Zealand’s Stoneleigh (be­low).

Wa­ter­shed from Mar­garet River uses shi­raz in its Shades Rosé, $20. Hot off the press is the 2017 De Bor­toli Vil­lages Heath­cote Rosé, $20. Made from gre­nache grapes, it’s re­strained and gen­tle. Look for more new-vin­tage rosé as it hits the shelves in com­ing months.
