Decoy, Rosé, California, USA, 2016
(at California, 31 May 2017)
Drinking Window: 2017 - 2019
A blend of Syrah and Pinot Noir, picked specially for rosé and vinified in stainless steel, the Decoy 2016 is realised in a Provençal style. A subtle bouquet of strawberry, watermelon and lemon zest introduces a glossy but bright, medium-full palate with good cut. It's crisp and refreshing, but with the texture to work well with food. For its modest tariff and ready availability (8,000 cases) this is very creditable indeed.
58% Syrah / Shiraz
