Floating Mountain Waipara Vin Gris 2009

Rose from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 20-May-2012
Single vineyard wine saigneed from Pinot Noir, indigenous yeast fermented in barrel to 13.3% alc., the wine aged on lees 5 months. Bright, full, peachy-pink with orange hues to the colour. The nose is complex with interwoven aromas of yellow stonefruits, subtle berry fruit, smoke. flint and herbs which unfold in layers. Dry and full-bodied, the palate is one of weight, depth and texture, with intriguing, complementary savoury and sweet stonefruit, floral and nutty elements. Some oak and reductive flintiness is noticeable adding interest. The wine finishes crisply with good clean acidity. This is a complex, and textured rosé to match with antipasto and charcuterie over the next 2-3+ years. 16.0+/20 May 2012 RRP $24.95
