Why then release a rosé at nearly eight quid? From Chile too, a country that has replaced Australia for value wines - just where rosé should be positioned price-wise , no? A wine with a cartoon, non-serious label - oh, the confusing contradictions.
Wine Tasting Note: Montes Cherub Rosé of Syrah, 2008, Colchagua Valley, Chile.
Stockist: Waitrose Price: £8.99 [More on Adegga / Snooth]
Plenty of strawberry/cherry lashed fruit with the dry tannins giving a sophisticated mouthful despite the cherryade colour, glowing as if radiated. Ripe, gentle fruit to the fore, dry tannins to the finish, And, always an indicator of decent quality, a long lasting aftertaste.
Sophisticated, classy almost and not a glugger by any standard but at £8.99 you have to wonder how much they have to pay Mr Steadman for his delightful Churb interpretation?
