Tasting Note: 2011 Twelftree Grenache Rose

With an aroma packed full of strawberry and dried rose petals this isnt a Rose  for wimps.  You can definitely see the Two Hands Wines approach here, although they are completely separate labels.  A pleasant candy/confectionery note will draw you in.  This is echoed again on the palate, with more dark berry and ripe cherry fruit sweetness but still very dry.

Two things set the Twelftree Rose aside; it’s probably more textural than other Rose’s and has good mouthfeel and a hint of creaminess.  The alcohol was noticeable on the finish, and would necessitate a gutsy pizza to counteract it.
