Winsor's choice: Dominique Portet 2011 Fontaine Rosé

Winsor Dobbin
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-pk3Xv3wCO6M/TqEnMNOpRBI/AAAAAAAABDk/NcZFtIz6apQ/s1600/Portet%2BRose.jpgAnother impressively dry new-wave rosé from father and son team Dominique and Ben Portet in the Yarra Valley - the ninth and 10th generations of family winemakers. This is worthy wine for inclusion in the second Rosé Revolution, a blend of merlot, shiraz and cabernet sauvignon from the Yarra and Pyrenees. It's a disturbingly drinkable wine with intense red fruit aromas and flavours but with a dry and savoury finish. Chill this down, serve it with a picnic and watch it disappear at breakneck speed. $20. www.dominiqueportet.com
