Escarpment ‘Rosé de Noir’ Martinborough Methode Traditionnelle 2014

Sparkling Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 28-Nov-2016
Bright peach-pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The bead is vigorous with moderately fine bubbles. This has a soft and gently voluminous nose with an array of clear and pure, fragrant red florals, with underlying strawberry and red berry fruit, revealing a suggestion of nutty and bready autolysis at the core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a finely concentrated and well-bound heart showing subtle strawberry and red berry fruit flavours lifted by red florals, revealing suggestions of bready autolysis and a hint of nutty aldehyde nuance. The mouthfeel is bright and refreshing with brisk mousse and effervescence, and light, dry textures providing structure and grip. The acidity is balanced and the wine has plenty of presence and depth. The wine carries with good linearity to a strong finish with red fruit and floral notes. This is a delicate strawberry and floral flavoured rosé methode with vigorous mouthfeel and presence. Serve as an aperitif and with poultry dishes over the next 3+ years. 100% Pinot Noir from Te Muna Road, given 2 hours skin contact and barrel-fermented in seasoned oak on lees until March, then triaged. The wine is 12.5% alc. and has 2.0 g/L dosage, the wine disgorged 8 July 2016. This has a crown seal closure. 18.0+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $35.00
