Mr. Brightside Rosé 12pk 2019
Winemaker Ben (Mr.) Riggs follows the philosophy “iconic wines from iconic regions”. Whether it’s McLaren Vale Shiraz, Coonawarra Cabernet, or Clare Valley Riesling, his wines are expressing the essence of the vineyard and variety in a style that is big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance. In Ben’s own words: “Think Ella Fitzgerald – bombastic and powerful with a huge vocal range, yet with purity of tone and a gentle sensibility when needed.”
Mr. Brightside Rosé 2019
Catches the eye with its bright, glowing pink colour in the glass. Strawberry-like aromas as a first impression with the perfumed character of the variety also evident. Fresh and bright on the palate, light on its feet too, with juicy but dry red-fruited flavours and acidity that feels entirely natural. A skilfully made and eminently drinkable wine.
