Alexander ‘Raumati’ Martinborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 17-Oct-2018
Bright, very pale candyfloss-pink colour with a little depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is light and refreshing with delicate aromas of cranberries and redcurrants along with cherries and fragrant floral nuances, and mouthwatering mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has taut and very delicate flavours of red florals, hints of cranberries and redcurrants with subtle mineral notes. The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing with lively acidity and the wine flows along a very fine-textured line leading to a subtle, lingering finish of red florals. This is a delicately flavoured dry rosé with fresh cranberry and redcurrant flavours and thirst-quenching minerals on a refreshing palate in the Provence style. Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and antipasto over the next 2 years. Hand-picked clone 5 fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard, pressed straight to tank with 20% in barrel for initial fermentation, the oaked portion finished in tank to 13.0% alc. and approx. 2 g/L RS. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $24.00
