If you go to the Alkimi website (http://www.alkimiwines.com) you won’t find a picture of Yarra Valley vineyards on the opening page but instead a picture of the Rhone Valley.
Stuart Dudine is unapologetically pursuing a Rhone style in the making of his wines. His varieties are Syrah, Grenache Noir, Marsanne and Roussanne. I like his approach and decided to give his wines a try here. A refreshing approach from an up and coming winemaker.
First cab off the rank is the 2017 Good Earth Syrah Rosé, a single vineyard wine from the Rising Vineyard in the Yarra Valley.
“Although light and easy drinking, the wine is layered and full on the palate. Made in a dry provencal style, this wine can be drunk with whatever you please, but the best serving suggestion is late on a sunny afternoon with friends and a Charcuterie board” says Stuart.
It’s offered here at S$47.
