Escarpment ‘Nina’ Martinborough Rosé 2015

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Jan-2016
Very light strawberry colour, very pale on the rim. The nose is elegant with a harmonious core of delicate aromas of soft red berry fruits along with subtle red floral notes and mouthwatering, piquant white stonefruit suggestions. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate features a finely concentrated heart with gently sweet, lush, but delicate flavours of stonefruits, soft red berries and red florals. Subtle nuances of herbs and minerals add detail and interest. The wine flows smoothly, following a very fine phenolic thread and line, with thirst-quenching acidity providing tension and contributing drive and energy. The palate leads to a lingering finish of red fruit and floral nuances. This is a delicate rosé with subtly rich, soft red berry and floral fruit, and a very fine-textured, thirst-quenching line. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and antipasto over the next 2 years. Clone 115 Pinot Noir from the Te Muna Road vineyard, given 3 hours skin contact and fermented in seasoned oak to 13.5% alc. and 3.8 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on lees. 112 cases made. 18.0/20 Jan 2016 RRP $25.00
