Wine of the Month: Wirra Wirra Mrs Wigley Grenache Rose 2012
Let the Rosé Revolution begin!
There is something very endearing about the Mrs Wigley range from Wirra Wirra and I, and I can hear kazillion hairs going up on end right about now, am not a cat lover! Animal loving wine-makers have often come up with wines to celebrate their pets but Wirra Wirra have done this range well and subtley.
I also might point out that on the bottle it states that standard drink calculation is qualified as being at ‘sea level’ just in case you are about to take it for drinking sky high on an alp somewhere. Love the precision. I first came across the fabulous rosé Mrs W Moscato on Wine Diva when it appeared on a food and wine match. However, I am glad that when the team decided to extend the range that they did make their Grenache Rose in the drier style. When I outed it at a recent BBQ, Mrs Wigley beguiled both sexes and willingly companions.
Deeper pink rosé in colour, indulgently ripe strawberries dominate and a drop of bubblegum musk just for added fun. You know the first flush of spring strawberries to be more precise. Although there is a pinch of cloves to the berries on the palate. It is elegantly weighted, soft and juicy with a generous length. Mrs Wigley is a pretty wine that has foodability appeal but is a delight on its own.
