2006 Claymore Deja Vu Rose

WNEMAKERS: Ben Jenneret
GRAPE VARIETIES : 85% Grenache / 15% Malbec
REGION: 100% Clare Valley
OAK MATURATION :A portion of our Clare Valley Grenache is hand harvested a little earlier to make this refreshing yet voluptuous Rose wine. Fermentation and storage in stainless steel produces a light bodied wine with vibrant primary fruit characters.
COLOUR: Pale, pretty pink.
BOUQUET: Delicate and pretty floral aromas waft along with fresh raspberry notes and musk lollies.
PALATE: Fresh berry flavours mingle with confectionary and cherries in the mouth. This is a generous rose wine with good length and wonderfully intense fruit profile. Green apple crispness balances fruit sweetness in the mouth.
GENERAL TECHNICAL NOTES: The freshness of this style is best preserved under screw cap - enjoy in its youth.
SERVE: Best served with a light chill. A great partner to summer grazing lunches or a lazy brunch of poached eggs, salmon and asparagus.
ALC: 12.5%
pH: 3.4
TA: 6.9g/L

Awards & Reviews
"Grenache and Malbec blend from the Clare Valley, South Australia. Pale, rose petal pink. Fresh fruity nose with a hint of strawberries on the palate and some grapey sweetness. Easy drinking style."
e-vine by Martin Field - June 2007

"Gloriously fruit driven, it delivers a litany of berry fruit aromas, quite ripe and fresh, upfront Ð and delicious. Indeed strawberries, raspberries and cherries abound from the nose. Quite fresh, lively acidity supports the ripe semi-sweet fruit flavours and gives it good balance and high drinkability along with a savoury lingering finish. Try it with pan fried garlic prawns."

I know nuts about wines thats why the information was ripped straight from the original website.
I remember and No im not drunk, the one I or rather we had was 2005 not 2006.
anyway, i realise yup.....alcohol do have an effect on relaxing people and allowing the mind to loosen up enough to spill the bottled up emotions and thoughts.
and the therapeutical effect the next day where u feel refreshed and ready to start all over again. its as if life has ended last night and today's another chapter, an empty page...
I dont have a good threshold for alcohol, at least i believe so.
Just 1 dose, i was already rambling on and on and on without feeling guilty.
I admit i was a lil tipsy by the time we left The Wine Hut. And we were only halfway done with the pink nectar...
on the way home on NR6, i was dosing in and out of consciousness, and its the first time in so many years that i allowed my mind to drift where it wanted to... thinking, dreaming, imagining.
the night air was good and the company before that was even better.
maybe i should do this more often... the only problem is locating the people who are willing to be my company, people who i am relax enough to drink with...
