Johner Estate Wairarapa Pinot Noir Rosé 2012

Rose from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-Oct-2012
Made from Gladstone Pinot Noir fruit spending 2 days on skins and fermented to 13.5% alc. and 6 g/L rs. Bright light pink colour with cerise and purple hues. This has a full, solid, and youthfully fresh nose with an amalgam of red cherry and berry fruits intermixed with red florals, herbs and earth. Off-dry to taste and full-bodied, bright, subtly sweet, cherry and raspberry fruit flavours are underlined by fresh herb nuances. The mouthfeel is robust with some tannin texture and zesty acidity adding a youthful, brashness and grip. The tannins and acidity carry the palate line to a dry, firm finish. This is a textural rosé with the structure to serve with charcuterie, poultry and pork over the next 2-3 years. 16.5/20 Oct 2012 RRP $18.00
