Brancott Estate ‘Identity’ Wairau Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 26-Sep-2018
Bright, very pale pink colour with suggestions of purple on the lighter edge. The nose is softly fresh with gently filling aromas of strawberries and cream harmoniously entwined with some confectionary, fresh fermentation esters, unfolding red florals. Dry to taste and medium bodied, the palate has soft and gentle, effusive flavours of strawberries and cream with confectionary, ferment esters and red florals. The flavours form a soft and light core and the mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh acidity. The wine has a slippery flow and leads to a light, fragrant finish. This is a soft and gently fruited dry rosé with flavours of strawberries and cream, confectionary and florals on a rounded, slippery palate with fresh acidity. Serve with antipasto over the next 2 years. 100% Pinot Noir, clones 777, 5 and 115, vines 19-30 y.o., from the company’s ‘Brancott’ and ‘Fairhall’ vineyards, given skin contact and fermented in stainless-steel, a portion with indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc. and 5.9 g/L RS. 16.5+/20 Sep 2018 RRP $21.99
