Ata Rangi Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - North Island
Review Date : 25-Oct-2016
This is 55% Merlot from Craggy Range in Hawke’s Bay with the remainder Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir from Ata Rangi sires, fermented bone dry. Helen reckons Merlot picked early gives the higher low acidity, Pinot Noir often a little too "coating and sweet”. We talked about Tempranillo being an ideal rosé variety, and Helen says the new plantings of Tempranillo at Ata Rangi will actually go into the up-coming rosé wines. Pale pink, this shows delicate and pristine red florals, the nose cool and fresh with subtle herbal nuances. Dry to taste, this is mouthwatering with the finesse of rainwater with lacy freshness, along with lifted red floral fruit. Quite beautiful and a wine that works its magic quietly. 18.0-/20 Oct 2016 RRP $20.00
