TASTING NOTE: The Hamilton family has been a major contributor to the Australian wine scene since 1837, but Hugh Hamilton Wines began in 1991. Fifth-generation winemaker Hugh is the black sheep of the family, always wanting to do things a bit differently, which is why he started his own operation. Besides the classic Shiraz and Cabernet wines, Hugh Hamilton also produces wines from the likes of Tempranillo, the Georgian grape Saperavi, and Sangiovese. This 100% Sangiovese rosé is floral and loaded with strawberry, cherry, white peach and light herbs. Balanced and zesty, it's perfect for seafood. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2017) Price $ 19.95
