Hancock & Sons ‘Lillies’ Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2018

Rose from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 21-Dec-2018
Pale peach-pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is firm and tightly bound, but elegant in proportion, with very good depth of yellow stonefruit, quince, subtle notes of herbs and redcurrants, nuances of ref florals and thirst-quenching chalky minerals. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has luscious and juicy flavours of yellow stonefruits, quince, red berry and aromatic florals with suggestions of confectionary, forming a rich heart. The wine flows along a fine-textured, mouthwatering phenolic line with bright acidity enlivening the mouthfeel and providing vitality. The wine carries to a brisk, fragrant finish. This is a deliciously lush and juicy dry rosé with stonefruit, quince, red berry and floral flavours on a fine-textured, mouthwatering palate. Serve as an aperitif, with antipasto and Asian cuisine over the next 2 years. 100% Cabernet Franc from Bridge Pa, hand-picked and WBP, and fermented in stainless-steel to 11.5% alc. and 3 g/L RS. 18.0+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $22.50
