FARR RISING SAIGNEE ROSE, 2016, $29
‘Saignee’ loosely translated from French means ‘to bleed’ and refers to the brief skin contact pinot noir grapes receive to draw out this wine’s salmon blush. Layered with savoury, drying, flavours, this is a mature-aged rose.
MARSANNE 2016, $13 Chateau Tahbilk has turned the unique Marsanne grape variety into a fully fledged cult classic. An addictive one-two punch of round, lemony, peachy fruit flavours gets a tune up from some cleansing, tensile acidity.
GEORGES DUBOEUF BEAUJOLAIS-VILLAGES 2016, $22
Beaujolais is famous for the light, wiry, zippy red wines made from Gamay. The absence of tannin and the delicate, sweet red and blue fruits make a dip in the Esky for a few minutes a great way to get maximum drinkability.
