2011 David Franz Brother’s Ilk “Sang et de L’Eau” Rose. Barossa Valley. 11.5%

Interesting colour this. Think dried peach, with orange, coppery hues.

Said it before and I’ll say it again. I love the packaging style of David Franz wines. Paper sleeve around the bottle, protecting the screen printed bottle. Brilliant.

Dry, bone dry..

Sour cherries, cranberry. Full of spice and savoury aspects. Pomegranate, white pepper, ginger. There is a brie like creamy palate with brioche complexity. Ruby grapefruit notes, apricot kernel. Medium acid and intensity.

Finishes a fraction short on the palate. Flavours are good while they last.

Enjoyable wine. Not as good as David Franz’s regular Rosé, the Red Rosé Survivor Vines.

Tasted 3rd April 2014

Purchased directly from the winery for $22
