Hunter’s Rosé 2020, Marlborough

Rosé from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Feb-2021
Bright, salmon-pink, even colour throughout. The nose is soft and bright, nuances of field strawberries, stonefruit, lemon melded with rose petals and a white spice hint. Medium-light bodied, dry to taste, aromas of field strawberries in focus, followed by lemon zest, stonefruit, a little white pepper and rose petals linger on the closing. The wine is refreshing with lively acidity balance, flow smoothly with a touch of creaminess to a cleansing, dry finish. Serve this as an aperitif and match with cold smoked salmon and cream fraiche over the next 2 years. A blend of Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. Pinot Noir was left on skins for 24 hours; all varieties were fermented separately before blending. 13.5% alc, 2.58 g/l RS. Vegan friendly. 17+/20 pts (86 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $19.90
