Kacaba 2008 Rebecca Rosé
It’s a shame my sister doesn’t drink, because a case of this would have been a perfect wedding gift – oh well, back to the drawing board on that one. On the other hand, I have no idea how she would have got it to Australia, where she’ll be spending the first three years of her married life. I guess I failed to mention here that my sister’s name is Rebecca, and now the astute amongst you have probably already figured out the connection – Rebecca Rosé, so you have to know I was slightly partial to this one before I even opened the bottle. So let’s keep in mind that my sister will never try this and I’ll let you in on why I think she should break her self-imposed vow of abstinence. This pink is a blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Merlot that takes the notion of pink very seriously. The smells are strawberry, raspberry, kiwi and citrusy-grapefruit. The palate offers up fun flavours like a citrus beginning before turning watermelon-like and red Jolly Rancherish. But it’s not a sweety by any stretch, it has a pink grapefruit cocktail finish that’s refreshing and very summery. Here’s wishing my sister all the best in Australia and in her married life, even if she doesn’t have the crutch of booze to fall back on. Cheers. Price: $12.95 – Rating: ****
