Coming up Rosť

July 2010

There was a time, not that long ago, when drinking Rosé was, well, not quite the thing to do — especially if you were a bloke. My favourite aunt warned me, “Never order Rosé, dear.” Thank God times change. Now I have yet to try Chateau de Sours 2008 Rosé, but I’m intrigued to hear it spoken of as one of the best in the world, “the Rolls-Royce of Rosés”. It’s made from 60 per cent Merlot and 40 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and you can have a sip at Flying Fish (Jones Bay Wharf 19–21 Pirrama Road, Ph 9518 6677) at their Chateau de Sours and Songlines dinner. It’s a five-course, nine-wine deg that works out at $150 a head and as well as the Rolls-Royce Rosé includes a swig of the 2007 Songlines ‘Leylines’ Shiraz, which costs an arm and a leg, unlike the Chateau de Sours, which is remarkably inexpensive. Worth a  look — with a lively debate on the Frogs vs the Skips, no doubt.
