Bedrock Ode to Lulu Rosé 2017

Rating: 90 points 

Made from 75% Mourvèdre and 25% Grenache, the 2017 Ode to Lulu Old Vine Rosé is very pale-salmon pink in color with delicate Bing cherries, raspberry leaves and red currants scents with hints of red apples and white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with lovely spicy sparks throughout the red berries flavors, with great freshness and a peppery finish.

New Wine for Spring!

We can feel it! The weather is changing and it is time to crack open the warm weather wines. We found two new wines that will be perfect for the backyard patio as the spring heats up. Delinquente Screaming Betty Vermentino and Bullet Dodger are two new favorites of ours that come from the Riverland region of Australia. Come check them out!

Delinquente 2017 Montepulciano – $18.99
Montepulciano isn’t a common variety, and the Riverland ain’t exactly the sexiest place to grow grapes. But boy does this Monte pack a punch! In every way this gang of grapes gets together and lets loose; pummelling your eyes with its deep plum colour, peppering your nose with bitter-sweet mulberries and cramming your mouth with a creamy texture that belies its fruity finish.

Delinquente 2017 Vermentino – $18.99
Vermentino is far more sassy than a savvy b. Tracing their origins to the island of Sardinia in the south of Italy, these gonzo grapes have completely embedded themselves in the warm, dry climate of the Riverland. Blonde tips with a citrus soul, this gang of grapes will leave your palate happy with a clean, crisp and floral lift.
