Hawkshead Rosé 2020, Central Otago

Rosé from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 16-Oct-2020
Bright, coral-pink with some depth, lighter edged. The bouquet is bright, fresh aromas of raspberries, watermelon melded with rosemary and spice. Medium-bodied, dry to taste, succulent raspberries and lime are mouthwateringly fresh, along with watermelon, mingle with rosemary and spice. The palate possesses a chewy, fine-textured phenolic grip, underlines lively acidity flow with vibrancy and vitality. This is a vibrant Pinot Noir rosé with succulent flavours of raspberries, watermelon, rosemary herb and spice with a dry, crisp finish. Match with venison salami and beef tataki over the next 2-3 year. Handpicked 100% Pinot Noir, destemmed, on skins for 2 days. Fermented in 80% stainless steel tanks, 20% older French oak barrels to 13% alc, 2 g/l RS. Rested on lees for 4 months. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Oct 2020 RRP $32
