Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Dec-2015
Bright, light purple-hued pink colour with some depth, lighter on rim, and youthful in appearance. The nose is very fresh and bright with pure and pretty aromas of red cherry, strawberry and raspberry and cream, unveiling a hint of raspberry confectionary. Red florals and nuances of passionfruit and blackcurrant leaf add lift and freshness. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the fruit flavours of cherries and raspberries show with richness and a degree of sweetness. Layers of herbs, passionfruit and leaf lend subtle refreshing detail. The palate has a lush, slippery flow with a positive core and smooth textures, and the acid liveliness adds energy and tension as the wine flows to a long, lingering finish of red florals and raspberries and cream. This is a refreshing dry rosé with smooth, rich, raspberry and cream fruit and smooth, slippery flow, with some passionfruit and leaf interest. Serve as an aperitif, with tapas, antipasto and Asian fare over the next 2 years. Clone 10/5 Pinot Noir fruit from Chaytors Road and older Dijon clone fruit from Rapaura, given 48 hours skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Dec 2015 RRP $21.35 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
