Escarpment ‘Nina’ Martinborough Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 22-Nov-2016
Pale candy-floss pink with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is initially tightly bound but finely presented with well-concentrated aromas of strawberries entwined with cranberries, pomegranate, watermelon, and mouthwatering mineral notes. The nose builds in volume with aeration unfolding lifted red florals. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is tightly bound with a concentrated core of gently aromatic strawberry, cranberry and watermelon fruit, along with red florals and nuances of minerals. The mouthfeel is finely textured with refined, dry phenolics, and balanced acidity provides energy, freshness and tension. The palate features tight, thirst-quenching linearity, carrying to a dry, fine-textured finish of strawberries and florals. This is a finely concentrated and tight, dry rosé with flavours of strawberries, watermelon and red florals on a dry, fine-textures, thirst-quenching palate. Serve as an aperitif, with canapes and antipasto over the next 2 years. 100% Pinot Noir from Te Muna Road, given 6 hours skin contact and fermented in seasoned oak to 13.4% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS. Named after Larry’s daughter Nina Rose. 18.0-/20 Nov 2016 RRP $24.00
