Anchorage Nelson Montepulciano Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 28-Dec-2015
Fruit from a Brightwater vineyard given skin contact for half a day and cool-fermented to 12.0% alc. and 1.6 g/L RS, the wine aged on lees. Bright, light, strawberry pink colour with some depth and faint purple hues on the rim. The nose is tightly bound and fresh with aromas of red cherry fruit entwined with subtle confectionary and mouthwatering mineral notes, and nuances of earth and herbs. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is crisp and brisk, with racy acidity underlining the fruit flavours of cherry, savoury watermelon and confectionary. This has thirst-quenching mineral elements and the wine follow a fine-textural line, the acidity carrying the flavours of fresh and sour cherries to a lingering finish. This is a crisp, mouthwatering, cherry-fruited dry rosé with some confectionary lift. Serve as an aperitif and with canapes over the next 2 years. 16.5+/20 Dec 2015 RRP $18.00
