Elephant Hill Tempranillo Rosé 2019, Hawke’s Bay

Rosé from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 06-May-2021
Brilliant, pale peach-pink, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full with nuances of strawberries and red berries, entwined with subtle florals, spices and mealy complexity. Medium-bodied, red berries, pomegranate leading the palate with a hint of citrus, zesty spices and subtle floral fragrance added interest, the finish linger with a meaty essence. The wine has a fine-textured phenolic line, flow with mouthwatering acidity to a crisp, dry finish. This is a bright and thirst-quenching red-fruited rosé with zesty spices on a fine-textured, refreshing palate. Match with antipasto over the next 2-3 years. 100% tempranillo sourced from Bridge Pa vineyard, whole bunch pressed, spent 1 hour on skins, fermented in stainless steel to 12.5% alc and on lees for 6 months. 18/20 pts (90 pts) May 2021 RRP $24
