Borthwick Wairarapa Pinot Rosé 2011

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Jan-2012
Made from Pinot Noir fruit from Gladstone, 13 clones used from vines 5-15 y.o., drawn off skins after 6 hours and fermented in seasoned oak to 13.0% alc. and 3.5 g/L rs. Light strawberry pink colour, pale on rim, this has a softly fresh, but gently full bouquet of strawberries and watermelons, with a touch of herbs and red florals. Off-dry to taste, restrained but positive flavours of strawberries and some confectionary notes show with some richness and sweetness. The palate is balanced by fresh acidity and the wine presents good weight and vinosity. This has a degree of succulence which leads to a dry, light finish with nuances of red berry fruit and florals. This is an easy and gently lush rosé with presence. Drink over the next 2 years with antipasto, tapas and dim sum. Ideal with al fresco dining. 16.5-/20 Jan 2012 RRP TBA
