Charlotte Dalton Mr Lincoln Rosé 12pk 2018
Charlotte Hardy is a global winemaker, resident of the ‘Hitsville’ of South Australian wine regions, Basket Range, and owner of a black Labrador puppy called Keith. For Charlotte, each wine takes on a persona, beginning – as you might expect – in the vineyard, but then revealing its true identity along the winemaking journey. It’s all softly, softly here. No additions (apart from a touch of sulphur in some but not all wines) and no pushing the wines in a direction they don’t want to go. And the wines are amazing. Charlotte coaxes the beauties out of their little vinous shells and reveals some of the most heartfelt and delicious wines we’ve come across here at Firebrand HQ.
Charlotte Dalton Mr Lincoln Rosé 2018
Lovely packing. No price on the bottle, so let me guess.
Pale and delicate, with just enough flavour of barely ripe strawberry, rosehip tea, some tang to the acidity, crisply folded lines, light chalky texture, bright finish. Tasty.
