Pied Stilt Nelson Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

28 November,2017

Pied Stilt is the label for the Jackson family who have a vineyard on a 12 ha site near the Motueka Sandspit. The vineyard was establish in 2001, with Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with Albarino added in 2011 and more plantings in 2014/2015. The vineyard gained full BioGro organic certification in 2005. As a number of contract growers do, they launched their own Pied Stilt wines from the 2009 vintage. The wines are made by Stefan Heinrich at the Anchorage Wines facility. Here, I review the new 2017 Pinot Noir Rosé. www.piedstilt.co.nz

Pied Stilt ‘Single Vineyard’ Nelson Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand – Nelson

16.5/20

Eye of the partridge colour with some depth, lighter edged. The nose is soft with aromas of quince, strawberries and watermelon, along with light floral notes. The aromatics are gently tfull with good depth. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has soft flavours of quince with an amalgam of strawberries and watermelon. The palate has light, mouthwatering acidity and the flavours flow along a smooth line, leading to a light finish of savoury red fruits. This is a soft quince, strawberry and watermelon fruited dryish rosé on a gently refreshing palate. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 18 months to 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit cool-fermented in tank to 12.5 alc. and 7 g/L RS. 16.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP $14.95
