Grava Martinborough Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 27-Feb-2018
Bright, light strawberry pink with slight peach hues and some depth, pale on the rim. The nose is bright and fresh with aromas of quince and watermelon, along with subtle notes of soft red florals and thirst-quenching mineral elements. Medium in sweetness and medium-bodied, the palate has rich and luscious fruit flavours of quince and watermelon, along with lifted red florals and a little confectionary. The mouthfeel balances richness and fruitiness with thirst-quenching freshness from good underlying acidity. The wine flows positively along a very fine-textured line leading to a lingering, delicately nuanced finish. This is a rich and fruity off-dry rosé with quince and watermelon flavours along with floral and confectionary nuances on a mouthwatering palate. Serve as an aperitif, with canapés and antipasto over the next 2 years. Made from Abel clone Pinot Noir, hand-picked and WBP, and fermented in 500L French oak puncheons, with 12% on skins to 12.5% alc. and 13 g/L RS, the wine aged one moth in barrel. 18.0-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $30.00
