The He­do­nist 2011 San­giovese Rose $18

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - FOOD -

This might just be the year of the root vegetable, all those fan­cily coloured car­rots and beets show­ing up in stores and on res­tau­rant dishes. This salad has gone straight to the recipe folder, its supreme earth­i­ness so in­stinc­tively en­hanced by the spices and sweet­sour ten­sion in the dress­ing. This rosé, from a bio­dy­namic Mclaren Vale win­ery, sits se­duc­tively be­side this dish, pale musk-stick pink but dry and savoury with just a sub­tle note of fruit sweet­ness in the back­ground. No scream­ingly loud sugar here – this is a so­phis­ti­cated dis­play of the pure and nat­u­ral.
