Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 26-Jul-2018
Moderately deep, light cerise-pink colour, paler on edge with some purple tints. The nose is elegantly proportioned with a fresh, firm core of mouthwatering strawberry and raspberry fruit, along with pomegranate and quince notes unfolding nuances of herbs and a suggestion of minerals. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a firm and taut heart with fresh flavours of raspberries and cream along with notes of pomegranate and quince, unfolding some herbal nuances. The mouthfeel is brisk with thirst-quenching acidity, and the wine flows along a fine-textured, mouthwatering line, leading to a fresh, brisk finish of red berry fruits. This is a taut and refreshingly firm, dry rosé with clean strawberry and raspberry flavours with herb notes on a mouthwatering palate. Serve as an aperitif and with antipasto over the next 2 years. 100% Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Lawson’s Dry Hills’ vineyards, given 8 hours on skins and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.0% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS. 17.0/20 Jul 2018 RRP $21.35 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
