Johanneshof ‘Maybern Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

Rose from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Nov-2016
Bright strawberry pink with some depth and slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, solid and voluminous with deep aromas of strawberry fruit entwined with cranberries and pomegranate, revealing nuances of raspberries and layers of red floral and fresh herbs. Dryish to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features a rich core of lush strawberry fruit with aromatic cranberry and pomegranate flavours and an array of soft red florals. This is gently mouthfilling and mouthwatering, and the palate possesses plenty of presence. The fruit sweetness is balanced by very fine phenolic textures and soft, ripe acidity. Floral nuances and a hint of confectionary emerge and carry to a soft, long finish. This is a full-flavoured dryish rosé with strawberry, cranberry and pomegranate flavours and a soft-textured, but mouthwatering palate. Serve with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Maybern’ vineyard, given a couple of hours skin contact and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 14.5% alc. and 7 g/L RS. 18.0-/20 Nov 2016 RRP $25.00
