Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Feb-2017
Bright, light, cherry-pink colour with some depth, paler on the rim with slight purple hues. This has a fresh, elegantly proportioned nose with bright and fragrant raspberry and cherry fruit entwined with red florals, along with subtle notes of confectionary and suggestions of fermentation esters. The aromatics grow in intensity and penetration with aeration. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with a core of raspberry, cherry and strawberryish fruit lifted by red florals and notes of confectionary. The palate balances juiciness with refreshing acidity lending a thirst-quenching mouthfeel, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line, carrying to a long, lingering, aromatic finish of red berry fruits and nuances of confectionary. This is a juicy, refreshing, aromatic, dryish rosé with raspberry, cherry and strawberry fruit. Serve as an aperitif, with tapas and dim sum over the next 2 years. Estate grown fruit for the rosé style, 93% Pinot Noir, given 12 hours skin contact and tank-fermented, the wine blended with 7% Pinot Gris. This is 12.5% alc. and 4 g/L RS. 17.5+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $21.35 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
