Honorary ‘Bankhouse Estate’ ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Aug-2018
Bright, even, strawberry pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The bouquet is softly full and gentle in expression with aromas of savoury red berry fruit and quince, along with lifted red florals and nuances of herbs. This builds in depth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has subtle and gently mouthfilling, restrained flavours of savoury strawberries and quince fruit, forming a lightly concentrated core. The mouthfeel is fresh with crisp acidity and the flavours flow with good linearity along a light-textured line, leading to a clean, dry finish. This is a dry rosé with softly mouthfilling flavours of savoury strawberries and quince with some bottle development notes with a good linear core and freshness. Serve with antipasto and Mediterranean fare over the next 18 months. 100% Pinot Noir from the ‘Bankhouse Station’ vineyard, crushed and destemmed directly to press, and tank-fermented to 13.8% alc. and 5.6 g/L RS, the wine aged 5 months on light lees. Winemaker: Heath Stafford. 16.5+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $18.00
