It was a beautiful sunny day today, so we decided to invite some friends over for afternoon tea on the deck. To accompany our afternoon tea we opened up a Coopers Creek Hawkes Bay Rose 2007. According to the bottle this is 50:50 Merlot/Malbec.
I wasn't overly fussed with it, but did help out in finishing off the bottle (in fact I probably drank over half).
So in terms of this wine:
- Colour: Lovely light guava pink
- Nose: Very light strawberry
- Palatte: Light strawberry with a reasonable balance and a bit of acidity
- Overall: I thought it was just ok and nothing special that I wouldn't rush out to buy again. Then again I'm not a big Rose fan. Jane on the other hand (along with our guests) really liked it and would definitely buy again.
