Babich Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Dec-2015
Pinot Noir fruit from a single site in the Wairau Valley given a short period on skins and cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS, the wine spending 4 months on lees with light batonnage. Bright, pale, candy-floss pink colour. The nose is fresh and light in presentation with tightly held aromas of strawberry and cherry fruit along with delicate confectionary notes, fresh fermentation esters and fragrant red florals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is fine in proportion with delicate, aromatic fruit flavours of red florals, red cherries and strawberries. The aromatics are enhanced by some confectionary elements and fresh, fermentation ester. The fruit is juicy in expression and follows a soft-textured core and line with slippery acidity. The wine leads to a light, lifted finish. This is a light and delicately fruited rosé with notes of strawberry confectionary, and a slippery flow. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and dim sum over the next 2 years. 16.5-/20 Dec 2015 RRP $22.00
