    Sud de Frank Rosé is a partnership between Jared Dixon of Jillly in Clunes, the Byron Bay hinterland which actually has a wine zone, the Northern Rivers, and Dan Graham of Sigurd Wines in the Barossa. Dixon and Graham met in winemaking at university. Sud de Frank is the latest avatar of both Dixon and Graham whose other sobriquets are Jilly, White Wolf of Cumbria, FIFO, Lone Ranger, Big Cats, and Sigurd. It’s hard to keep up. So this is a joking-title (?) of a wine, seemingly French, with the label and cap cutely representing the French flag colours. (I love it, too, because my father was Frank and frank.) It is a gorgeous traditional Rosé, of bronze/salmon in colour, rich strawberries and cream in perfume, and gobsmackingly dry on the palate. To drink, to drink, to drink. What I don’t like is the absence of year and grape variety on the label. And this could do with the winemakers’ names too.
