Arrogant Frog 2015 Syrah Rosé

This has to be the best wine bargain in Australia right now. Bar none. Just how Jean-Claude Mas and his team can produce a dry rosé of this quality from the Languedoc in France to export to Australia and retail at $10 a bottle is remarkable. The Arrogant Frog wines usually offer excellent value - but this one is stupendously good for the price. It is dry and refreshing in the southern French style, lighter in colour than in previous vintages but even more alluring. Made from shiraz (syrah) grapes from the Limoux region and sub-titled Ribet Pink, this has delicious bright fruit, savoury notes and bright acid. The quintessential lunchtime or picnic wine. Available at Dan Murphy's and BSW stores. If you love rosés I'd go out and buy a case - and have one friend who has already done so. $10.
