2015 Philip's Frolic AURA Rosé
AURA rosé is a tribute to Provence, pale pink, long sensual palate, minimal sweetness ~ a worthy alternative to Champagne ~ our 2015 vintage is an epiphany of flavour and delight.
Tasted by James Halliday on 12 March 2016
"Pale translucent pink a pinot meunier with six people having roles in its production, very like the credits for a film (short or long) or a TV soapie, with three co-producers including Philip Madden. It comes from John Love's Collina del Re Vineyard at the very top of the King Valley, and its crisp, incisive varietal character stands out like a beacon: super-spicy, super-dry and super-long in the finish and aftertaste."
Rated top Rose’ released summer of 2015 by Robert Geddes Master of Wine and Australian Wine Vintages:
“Philips Frolic 2015 Aura Pinot Meunier Rose’ 92/100
Made in the rosé fashion, whole berry and bubble gum pink jelly beans, with good weight and structural flavours to the rose petal and geranium aromas. There is a freshness to the strawberry and raspberry finish so it will do great things with food, serve chilled. Unique and a nice point of difference to other rosés.”
