Bannock Brae ‘Cathy’s’ Central Otago Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 27-Oct-2016
Bright, light cerise-pink with some depth and pale purple hues on the rim. The nose is fresh and bright with elegantly presented, but deep aromas of red cherry fruit along with subtle notes of cranberries and raspberries, lifted by red floral elements, fresh herbs and a suggestion of confectionary. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features vibrant, aromatic fruit flavours of red cherries, raspberries and cranberries along with a little confectionary nuance. The fruit sweetness is balanced by a soft and smooth-textured line and gentle mouthwatering acidity, which enhances the fruit aromatics. The flavours carry with good drive to a long, lingering finish of cherries, raspberry and confectionary elements. This is a bright, aromatic rosé with flavours of cherries, raspberries and cranberries on a soft, smooth, thirst-quenching palate. Serve with dim sum, antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit from Bendigo, picked early and given 2 days skin contact, and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 13.72% alc. and 6.4 g/L RS. 18.0/20 Oct 2016 RRP $24.00
