Black Cottage Marlborough Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Oct-2015
Bright, pale salmon-pink colour, lighter on edge. The nose is softly fresh with delicate aromas of strawberries and cream, and red florals, along with subtle notes of confectionary, herbs and minerals. The aromatics are harmonious and balanced in expression. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, delicately luscious and lively fruit flavours of strawberries and cherries intermingle with lifted florals and nuances of fruit pastilles, forming a smooth core and palate line. The mouthfeel flows with vitality, enlivened by light, lacy acidity, guided by a fine thread of phenolics. The wine carries to a dry, light finish with gentle strawberry notes. This is a light, lively and gently luscious dryish rose with fresh strawberry flavours. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and dim sum over the next 18 months to 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the Wairau Valley, cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 10 weeks on lees. 16.5+/20 Oct 2015 RRP $18.00
