Church Road Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 26-Jan-2017
Bright, light, cerise-pink with some depth and youthful purple hues, lighter on the rim. This has an elegantly presented, fresh nose with aromas of raspberries and redcurrants along with fragrant red florals and subtle thirst-quenching mineral elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant flavours of raspberry and redcurrant fruit with a subtle layering of red florals and cherry confectionary. The mouthfeel is crisp and mouthwatering from lacy acidity and the wine flow with good energy along a very fine-textured line, leading to a light, zesty finish. This is a bright and aromatic dryish rosé with flavours of raspberries and redcurrants, and nuances of confectionary on a gently mouthwatering palate. Serve as an aperitif and with Asian fare over the next 2 years. A blend of 86% Merlot, 7% Syrah, 5% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 91% from the Bridge Pa Triangle and 9% Gimblett Gravels, a portion from saignee, cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 8 g/L RS. 18.0-/20 Jan 2017 RRP $19.95
