Mount Brown North Canterbury Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

15 October,2018

Mount Brown has grown its market presence considerably over the past couple of years due to active marketing and producing high quality wines offered at very good prices. The wines appear regularly at the top level in wine judgings which aids the cause. Catherine Keith and her father Tony Rutherford operate three vineyards in North Canterbury which have mature vines, and they have the thoughtful and experienced Frank Manifold as their winemaker. Here, I review the new release 2018 Mount Brown Pinot Noir Rosé.


Mount Brown North Canterbury Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand – Canterbury & Waipara


Bright, very pale pink with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and clean, a little restrained in expression initially with aromas of red cherries along with subtle notes of red florals and hints of mouthwatering minerals. This is still taut, but unfolds refreshing herb suggestions with aeration. Dryish to taste, the palate is bright and lively with attractive fragrant red floral notes with lifted confectionary and a base of red cherry fruit, along with minerals and herbs. The mouthfeel is refreshing and flows along a light-textured phenolic line with bright, lacy acidity, leading to an aromatic finish of florals and confectionary. A little shy on the nose, this is a bright and vibrant, aromatic, dryish rosé with red floral and cherry fruit and soft, mouthwatering mineral motes and a littlr confectionary on a light-textured palate. Serve as an aperitif and with canapés over the next 2 years. A blend of early pick Pinot Noir and saignee wine, plus approx. 5% Tempranillo, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and approx. 6 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $15.99
