Rockin’ Rodet


I’ve been recommending this red for years and having tasted the delicious 2012 edition it’s time to really shout-it-out. It offers Beaujolais-style fun and fruitiness, along with a little rustic feeling. The French café feeling ““ by the second glass you’ll be over there!

But Rodet’s wine is not just for Euro travelers, it could easily convert die-hard Shiraz fans. Sure it is less hefty and intense, but note the silky charm. The ability to feel both dry and slightly sweet, both rustic and pretty ““ contrasts that deliver more than a single show. Contrasts that keep the palate interested from glass to glass. The French thing.
