Elephant Hill Hawke’s Bay Syrah Rosé 2017

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 18-Oct-2017
Bright salmon-pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is softly fresh and voluminous with good depth of watermelon, quince and cranberries with red florals, and a fine core of mouthwatering mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a deep heart of watermelon, quince and cranberry fruit along with lifted red florals. The fruit is rich and mouthfilling and enlivened by bright, crisp, thirst-quenching acidity. The wine flows with some underlying power along a very fine-textured line, leading to an aromatic, lingering finish of red fruits and florals. This is a rich, mouthfilling dry rosé with flavours of watermelon, quince and cranberries, on a well-driven, crisp, mouthwatering palate of substance. Match with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. A blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Tempranillo, the fruit 42% Gimblett, 40% Bridge Pa and18% Te Awanga, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS. 18.5-/20 Oct 2017 RRP $24.00
