Black Cottage Rosé 2020, Marlborough

Rosé from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jul-2020
Bright, very light salmon-pink, even throughout. The nose is full, and upfront fills with nuances of an amalgam of field strawberries, red berries, cherries, along with rose petals and delicate spices. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, there is a good core of red berries, cranberries, along with lime, tamarillo; melded with fresh green herbs, flower petals and spices. The palate is elegant with a chalky texture. The taut acid cut is smooth-flowing with good energy, providing a good drive to a crisp and refreshingly lingering finish. This is an attractive rosé with appealing flavours of red fruit, balanced mouthwatering acidity on a fine chalky texture line. Serve as an aperitif or match with seafood over the next 2 years. Fermented in stainless steel tanks to 12.5% alc, 2 g/l RS. Aged on fine lees for 8 weeks. 17.5+/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $18
